[EP-tech] GDPR issue: replace_core (to set export_as_xml => 0) no longer effective for contact_email in v3.4+?

Hi Florian,

You will need to copy flavours/pub_lib/cfg.d/eprint_fields_common.pl to 
your archive cfg/cfg.d/ directory and set the export_as_xml => 0 in this 
newly created file.

I agree we should probably not have this field exporting by default, 
although it is the sort of fields that would typically be required in 
internal (authenticated) exports.  I have created a GitHub issue for this:

I think chan
