[liberationtech] database tracking separated families (was: Let's reunite the kids forcibly torn from their migrant parents)

Hello LiberationTech,
Last month there was a brief discussion here about setting up a database
for tracking and reuniting families separated at the US-Mexico border. I
haven't seen an update on this list in a while, and the website Helpfind.us
doesn't seem to have gained much momentum.

I have two questions. Did the conversation fizzle out, or is it happening
in a different venue? I tried signing up for the mentioned listserve and
got a bounce-back. What's the status of these efforts?

And second, was there much conversation about the ethical and potentially
dangerous implications of this project? I didn't see much on this list, but
it did come up once or twice. How seriously were/are those considerations
taken?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts and updates,
Ryan
