Bug Description

In Bug 1447865 and Bug 1396321, we're making changes to the registration data that Mahara sites can opt-in to sending back to mahara.org. Both of these bugs will require that we ask the admin to verify that they're okay with sending the new registration data, and the new privacy policy on it.

So I've created this bug in order to ensure that we bundle both of these verifications into the same update.

Marking critical because we've already merged in Bug 1447865, and we can't ship that in an upgrade without also having this confirmation step (or else we'll be violating our own privacy policy).

Aaron Wells (u-aaronw) wrote :

The biggest hazard here, is that if we just quietly untick the "send data" box, no one will notice that they're no longer sending data, and our stats will drop way way down.

So we need to make sure that there's a prominent reminder about this immediately after the upgrade.

Aaron Wells (u-aaronw) wrote :

For the implementer, note that there are actually two related things here:

1. There's "register", which is a one-time thing that people do immediately after they install their site, if they go to admin/registersite.php

2. There's the weekly data, which is sent out by a cron task. Whether or not this is sent depends on whether you tick the "Send weekly updates?" box on the registration screen. It can also be toggled from the site settings.

Both of these send the same data.

Before you register, admin/registersite.php shows you a preview of the data that will be sent to mahara.org. After you register, it just tells you "You've registered" and doesn't show you anything more. It would be good if, after you've registered, it continues to show you "Here is the data that you're sending across".

We will need to have this functionality backported as well due to bug 1447865 where we want to capture more stats about sites to help us decide what architecture we need to support
