    Way to go Gutenberg developers!

    The Gutenberg avalanche is now beginning!

    Interesting that opt-in telemetry was pulled from the Gutenberg project after Matt called it “a terrible idea”, yet Automattic decided tracking things was worthwhile.

    Where exactly is the privacy policy at WordPress.com and Jetpack sites which tells users about this tracking?

    Is this tracking opt-in or opt-out?

    Where exactly can it be switched off?

    What exactly else is tracked?

    What is the postal address for a GDPR request about this tracking?

    This link is nowhere in Gutenberg, nowhere in our wordpress.com testsite, nowhere in Jetpack, nowhere at Gutenstats.blog

    Besides that the link does not explain the following questions:

    Where exactly is the privacy policy at WordPress.com and Jetpack sites which tells users about this tracking?

    Is this tracking opt-in or opt-out?

    Where exactly can it be switched off?

    What exactly else is tracked?

    Maybe somebody else who is familiar with GDPR requirements can help with a more detailed answer. Thanks.

      @Gary:
      If I go on a website that uses Jetpack, where do I find this link? The fact that a Google search is needed is a bad sign from the point of view of GDPR requirements.

    Those numbers are meaningless unless compared to something. What is the amount of sites NOT using Gutenberg. How many posts have been made WITHOUT Gutenberg.

    That compared with the fact that it only counts Jetpack and .com users makes the site kinda pointless.

    And dont even get me started on the GDPR nightmare this site implies.

      I agree, pure propaganda by the BDFL Matt & co.

      According to Google, there’s 644,000,000+ websites. However, there’s suggestions that roughly 200,000,000 are active.

      Playing with the active number and going off WordPress’s claim that it runs 20% of the internet leaves us 40,000,000 websites. If 450,000 of those installed Gutenberg, that’s about 1.125% of all WordPress sites running it.

      All approximates of course. We have to assume that some unknown number of WordPress websites would count as inactive; I’m just giving it the best chance possible in my admittedly flawed math.
