There seem to be a number of interrelated issues occurring with the quicklinks menu in the current qa/2.x branch.

First, the link to the Privacy Policy page does not seem to be showing up in the Quicklinks menu, even after a purge. In fact, 2 devs reported at points seeing NO links in the Quick links menu, though I personally haven't been able to reproduce this.

There is also a regression going on that seems related to https://github.com/artefactual/atom/pull/1229/files#diff-40186a10e33f255dc3bb7cbdebf4ed113f333ff7deef1302869bc10febad4acd from #13297. Previously, privacy was a protected slug - however, before #13297, this meant that the privacy policy page could not be deleted. In the course of addressing this, it seems that the privacy slug is no longer protected. However, because the page title is actually "Privacy policy", this means that running the slug generation task with the --delete option means that the default privacy banner (and, if it was showing up at all, likely the link in the quicklinks menu as well) no longer work, as the replacement slug is "privacy-policy" instead of just "privacy".

We'll need to resolve these issues before a 2.7 release.

I think the quick links issue might be PHP version specific given that a commit where the quick links work fine on a Ubuntu 18.04-based VM won't work on the Ubuntu 20.04-based VM.
