@pitaj Having a branch for the production version with a similar dump output is actually a great idea. You can solve the conflicts during git merge (or PRs if there would be a tea working on this) and there should be no problem.
As far as I understood most of the discussion is made there. Furthermore I understood that the GDPR plugin was made for migrating old forums to the new consent mostly required by EU regulations in May 2018. So my problem in 2021 is:
I would like to ask all our users to consent once again AND to change the sources they are consenting to. I thought the gdpr plugin might be helpful - but as far as I understand I am not capable to unset the consent state with it. So basically my questions are two:
how do I unset the consent state of (all) users?
are they forced to consent for the next login?
