Data retention guidelines/Introduction

We are happy to announce that the first draft of the data retention guidelines are now available for community review and feedback. This draft received input from many WMF stakeholders, and will evolve through continued feedback.

This draft is just that, a draft -- we want to hear from you about how we can make it better. The community consultation period for this draft will be open until 14 February 2014, which coincides with the end of the consultation period for the draft of the Privacy Policy. Once the consultation period is over, the document will continue to be updated to reflect current retention practices.
