Last weekend, from June 1 to 3, 2018, I was in the first WordCamp Irun and, in addition to making an emotional memory , I would like to take up some of the reflections that arose there, to submit them to your judgment and opinion.
Little can be said about WordCamp Irun, or much, or everything, and I mean that being a first WordCamp in Irun has not noticed much, or nothing, or all.
Let's see, I'll explain …
In a first event one would expect errors, and there were none.
In a first event one will find illusion , and there were plentiful, which I hope will not decay.
In a first event one would expect improvisations, and there were none.
It was a perfect event which I hope to enjoy many more years, for the quality of its people, for the enthusiasm of the team, for the beauty of the place, for the food, for everything.
Summing up, an event of 10, seamless, all perfect .
Special mention deserves the dinner of the organization for speakers, sponsors and volunteers, which took place in the Ona Cider House, place to which I will return, and I recommend you to meet at least once in life.
Spectacular food , the impressive location, the cozy atmosphere, everything perfect. No words, all praise.
As in all WordCamp, there was everything from presentations to the general public as other for advanced users, divided into two rooms.
But there was also an innovation, the space podcasters in which throughout the day the most famous WordPress podcasters in Spain had a space fully prepared to make their live programs
I had the pleasure of participating in one of them, Jaime Garmar and as a public in Fernando and Oscar and it is an experience that I recommend expand to other WordCamps.
Of the papers, I obviously could not see all of them, but I would like to highlight some that I especially liked …
How to generate sales in your Ecommerce thanks to Pinterest Business, by Kristina Pach – Fantastic, interesting and very productive stance to take advantage of unknown and profitable spaces. Highly recommended You can see it right here .
WP-CLI to do weekly maintenance of your site, by Javier Casares – A quick review of everything that WP-CLI can do otherwise we would take much longer. Interesting, for all audiences, you just have to lose your fear of the console.
Roboto, Comic Sans, Helvetica? Is it really important to choose the typography for my website ?, by Ana Cirujano – As always, Ana fell in love with the audience by teaching us more about the correct choice of typography for our website. It is already available his paper here .
Not by much plugin install, dawn earlier …, by Jaime Garmar, a very instructive and participative presentation on the criteria when choosing plugins.
Gutenberg, the future of WordPress, by José Ángel Vidania, who made a fantastic presentation about the present and future of the next WordPress editor, Gutenberg .
Oh, and I had the honor of opening and closing WordCamp Irun, first with my presentation on some aspects of the past, present and future of WordPress with the following presentation (and video) …
 And, later, Vidania invited me to be part of the closing of his speech on Gutenberg for which we mounted a kind of combat, known as is my criticism with the way in which Gutenberg has been incorporated to WordPress.
Of this combat they remained memorabl is reviews about everything, but not only, on Twitter …
If you check the videos of my two interventions, the one of my presentation and the one of my final intervention in the one of Vidania, as well as in the episode of the podcast of the WP Club that will leave this week, I wanted that this WordCamp was thinking about where the future of WordPress goes .
And in this Gutenberg has a lot to do …
The software is great, it was needed, Gutenberg is the right way for WordPress to compete face to face with SquareSpace or Wix, be clear .
Unify the layout Visual under a clean system is perfect.
But the process of incorporating Gutenberg into the WordPress global project has been anything but beautiful . As on other occasions it has been Matt Mullenweg who has made the decision and not the WordPress community and was not this a project community driven ?
It seems that it is while Matt has no other priorities for his company, Automattic, and product, wordpress.com which is what seems to have prevailed in this decision to incorporate yes or yes Gutenberg into the essential WordPress code, by phases, instead of offering it, selling it, promoting it, as a plugin.
This has meant that WordPress 5.0 will not come out until the first phase of Gutenberg is ready, which curiously incorporates layout in the entries, where there should never be any layout, neither with Gutenberg, nor with Elementor nor with Divi nor with anything .
And it has meant that the big companies of the WordPress ecosystem bet for it, leaving aside the vast majority, that we are, from ind users ependientes, and free of WordPress.
This is a bad message, a bad decision that will cause many problems.
Problems like that, in the face of the impossibility for thousands of WordPress developers to adapt its plugins and themes to Gutenberg will create a kind of digital security breach in which there will be thousands of WordPress installations that will not be able to immediately update to WordPress 5.0, leaving unsafe installations of WordPress 4.x.
Problems such as unilateral decisions of this type generate distance in the community with Matt, Automattic, and all those who prioritize their commercial interests to the opinions of the WordPress community.
Problems such as will be launching an incomplete product which will also not be able to compete with Wix or SquareSpace, despite the stigma provoked in the community.
WordPress will survive  019]but with wounds, one more, at the core of its essence: the community that creates it, maintains it, makes it big.

If I have to answer right now the answer is clear: No, WordPress does not meet or help meet the RGPD , because it does not offer basic that the new regulation requires for the protection of the privacy and personal data of the users.
Does not allow users to delete their own data.
Does not allow users export your data.
Are there plans for WordPress to comply with the RGPD?
Fortunately, yes. A team has been formed on the Make WordPress blog that has prepared a roadmap with the steps that WordPress has to apply to comply with the RGPD.
Under the label # gdpr-compliance is grouping all conversation and initiative in this regard. And there are already concrete measures in the form of tickets in the Trac to incorporate in the WordPress base software the necessary changes for WordPress to comply with the RGPD, or at least help it.
Objectives  The objectives to be met are the following:
Add tools (functions, hooks, etc.) in WordPress to facilitate compliance, and privacy in general:
For administrators and site owners to be able to have an overview of what data is stored and how to use the tools
To be able to anonymize / delete personal data.
To be able to display / export personal data (for transfer) )
Add notifications for both registered users and commenters about what WordPress data collects by default and why.
Establish a privacy center that stores the information of the RGP D for site users, administrators and developers.
For site users and administrators: What is collected, how long, why, etc.
For developers: How to use the tools included in WordPress
route for WordPress to comply with the RGPD
Although there is no definite date yet to meet the aforementioned objectives, there is already a roadmap in which specific tasks are added, namely:
There must be two main tools:
A tool with which to export all the data stored on the site (by email address or user name).
A tool with which to export all personal data and anonymize all the data personal data and published content (entries, comments, etc.)
For commentators, the private data stored are the IP addresses, the rest is public data.
Field or confirmation window for request to see and download your private data, and perhaps also the public ones.
Field or confirmation window to request the deletion / anonymization of the data.
Request permission to store the comments cookies. This could be a box (selected) under the comments form, such as "Save my name, email and URL of my site in the browser for the next time I post a comment. More information. "
For registered users all the data stored by default can be seen in their profile (except the IP address if they have commented on the site) and most can be edited and deleted now from there.
Button to download your private data, including IP addresses if you have commented, and even your public data
Button to request the deletion / anonymization of your account
Requests to see, download and delete / anonymize private data should have confirmation (double) to avoid errors. One solution would be to send a token by email when a commenter requests access / deletion / anonymization of their private data.
The requestor will have to send that token as confirmation of their request before the site owner takes the action. Although this could be done automatically, deleting and anonymizing would not be reversible, and could generate some type of abuse. In this case it is better that the action is carried out by the administrators, once the confirmation is received.
Collection and retention of WordPress data by default
Create texts on what information WordPress collects and what options users have, with links to more information.
Create "more information" pages on WordPress.org and / or on the privacy resources of the site.
Administrators with sites that collect data from EU residents will have to show a warning in plain and simple language to clearly explain the flow of data, its retention and user options.
The goal here is to add the functionality of to help users create a privacy notice using tools that auto report The data collected and its retention by the installed plugins will be systematically
For this there will be some help functions of type wp_get_privacy_policy_page () to be used in themes, etc.
What we do with your data / why we collect data
With whom your data is shared
Where your data is stored, and how your personal data is protected
How long your data is retained
What options do you have to use and collect your data
How can you access, update or delete your collected data

Publication of privacy notice
In any case, generating the privacy notice will not be an automatic task: the tool / functionality will collect the information necessary for manual approval and approval by the administrator.
Guidelines for plugins
As I mentioned above, this type of documentation and tools are being created in parallel, which must be aligned with the functionalities to be included in WordPress.
Add documentation / help for administrators to know how to use these tools
The objective is to offer a simple guide to administrators and users about the tools created with this project.
It will also offer general information about problems about data protection and good practices, but it will not be a legal guide.  59003] The idea is to create a specific blog on WordPress.org, in the style of the transparency blog .
The documentation will also be on the Tools menu with brief explanations on the available privacy tools and how to use them.
It will also contain the tools, for example, an entry field to anonymize the comments by email address.
The documentation will be available in the new menu Tools => Privacy .
There is even a rough draft of how it would be, this:
Will WordPress comply with the RGPD before its entry into force?
Well it is not very clear, but at least it is in it, and as you see there are many open tasks.
It was proposed to include some tool in WordPress 4.9.5 but it has been delayed for the moment.
What is clear is that the fulfillment of the RGPD by the WordPress base software must arrive before WordPress 5.0.
