Re: Privacy ?
There’s no need to worry about privacy features in BuddyPress. As I have stated previously on these forums and on my blog, I am committed to bringing my current Privacy Component up to code to work with BP 1.2. With the 1.2-beta coming out very soon, I plan to use that to finalize the new privacy codebase.
As it has been discussed before, it will be up to the community to decide the fate of my BP privacy solution. If it is deemed sufficiently useful, valuable, and robust, it will be considered for eventual inclusion into the core.
But, I’ll stress once more, that this is not my decision. Going forward, I fully expect some form of privacy to make it into core down the road—whether it is my code, part of my code, or new code.
