I've got a Privacy component report added to Trac, I've also taken it
upon myself to have new tickets under this component assigned to me.

I've requested a Trac canned response for 'Please retest and get back to
us' as quite a few bugs that may be privacy related are fairly old and
I'd like to hear back from reporters whether it's still a problem with
current release.

Further, I've taken 'ownership' of Ticket #38 - the ancient 'Make
Privacy Work' catchall. I've requested that the noise on that ticket be
taken elsewhere and referenced back, I guess we'll see what happens here.

I expect that over the next few weeks, I'll be updating the Privacy
Rewrite wiki page adding further details that have been 'uncovered'
since it was last edited as well as adding in the details of what was
achieved in the '09 GSoC project but not yet merged.
