<title>Information disclosure clean-up policy</title>

<p><i>Historical note:  This policy was inspired by a
a [https://www.mercurial-scm.org/wiki/mpm/pii|similar policy] instituted
by Matt Mackall for the [https://www.mercurial-scm.org/|Mercurial] project].</i></p>

<h2>Information Disclosure Clean-up Policy</h2>

<p>Sometimes people post confidential information to the [mailing lists] and
then ask us to remove it.
This is mostly pointless, as the mailing lists are
mirrored by multiple third parties we have no control over.
Furthermore, it is very time-consuming for the SQLite developers to try to
isolate and remove archived information from the MailMan logs.

<p>Therefore we have instituted the following information clean-up policy:

<p>If you would like posts that you have submitted to any of SQLite's
mailing list archives removed, then 
make a donatation of $100 to either the
Software Freedom Conservancy or the Electronic Frontier Foundation (your choice)
and send us the receipt for your donation together with the specific mailing
list posts you want removed and the SQLite developers will then spend up to
half an hour attempting to undo your mistake as far as possible.
To reiterate: the SQLite mailing lists are mirrored by multiple third parties
and so doing this will not remove your information from the internet.
