Gutenberg Design Updates

@kjellr started by sharing @karmatosed’s recap of the Gutenberg contributions that happened at WCEU.

Kjell also updated the team on some initial work happening in regards to expanding the Gutenberg editor beyond the post content, noting that this is a big step towards full-site editing.

Also shared that block reordering animations have just been merged in. 🎉

Feedback was requested for the following issues:

Open Floor

UI for adding classes to content

@joyously proposed the discussion of the possibility for themes to add UI to the editor for adding classes to content. After a lengthy discussion, the team agreed that it would be best to open a new GitHub issue and continue the conversation there.

@estelaris followed by sharing that documentation work is happening for the redesign of the new HelpHub. The goal is to come up with a flexible template that can be used in other languages besides English.
