      Adjustements needed on the build process for CI, currently a permission issue preventing the nightly build to include the latest AdminExperience.

    2. RFC: Clearing Cache Improvements:
      - Improving the button to a dropdown with multiple options as discussed in RFC.

    5. RFC: Site Template Support
      - Template used for import-export has changed to xml+sqlLite
      - Need UI and code change for supporting site templates with new format
      - Code for import/export is in the Persona Bar only, and should be moved to the platform

    7. RFC: GDPR Data Processing Consent
      - Should we add a table for that to keep history of acceptances or should we just use the existing UserPortal table as a boolean column, admin UI would clear it when needed.

      Peter will create the issues and close the RFC
