pyOpenSci editors might be interested in a new section we’re adding to the rOpenSci dev guide on ethics and data privacy. We received a submission of a package that scraped health records that gave us pause, and we decided we needed something comprehensive to evaluate such submissions. You can check out and discuss the section here: https://github.com/ropensci/dev_guide/pull/251/
thank you @noamross i hadn’t even considered that as an issue because it has not come up for us yet but it absolutely makes a lot of sense and we are happy to learn more via what you guys have written up!! thank you for sharing this!!
