Hello everybody,

given that the GDPR is going into effect tomorrow and there have been 
plans announced to restrict the minute diffs:

Whet is the state of this? Is it sufficient to send HTTP basic auth (via 
HTTPS) with a dedicated user from tomorrow on to continue consuming the 
diffs (with metadata)? Or are there specific requirements, like using 
OAuth? Or is there simply no change tomorrow, and the restriction will 
be announced separately?

What I would like to avoid is to poison the client side database with 
fake user data.

Best regards,
