General messages

Dear Developers,

You will notice that the GDPR module has been improved thanks to a contributor from the community. As improving modules is sometimes easier than to improve the PrestaShop project’s core, this is a very good way to start to contribute. Just have a look at the Native modules integration kanban on GitHub, and pick something up in the todo list.

A quick update about PrestaShop’s GitHub issues and pull requests:
