Gutenberg on WordCamp sites?

A couple of weeks ago, @jorbin suggested that we install and activate GutenbergGutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. on the network. This would make it available on every WordCampWordCamp A WordCamp is a conference where the WordPress community come together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. site to use for creating/editing posts and pages. It would not be initially available to use for other post types, like speakers and sessions, because these use metaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress. boxes for some of their content, which are currently an unresolved issue in Gutenberg.

Some WordCamp sites only have a couple of users (generally the lead organizers), while others have scores. It would be an opportunity for these folks to try out the new editor with a real use case, get a feel for how it works, and help the Gutenberg team as it continues to improve the pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress.

It would, of course, be completely optional. Since the Gutenberg plugin is intended for testing and feedback, it lives on a separate screen and the normal editor would still be available.

So the question for the community is, should we activate Gutenberg on WordCamp sites?
