Gutenberg page changes

The “problem”

The Gutenberg page on /gutenberg/ talks exclusively about what we’ve started calling the block editor elsewhere. When you read that page you:

  • Could be lead to believe it’s the end result of the Gutenberg project;
  • Could mistakenly believe that what we now call the block editor is still called Gutenberg;
  • Have no clue about the next phases of the project, even though those are well defined.

Initial thoughts about a solution

After some initial discussions in #core-editor today I’m leaning towards a solution in the following form:

  • Move and modify the current page to be a page about the block editor that lives either under /about/features/ or as a subpage of /gutenberg/. I think the former is a better long term solution. The modification most needed is calling the thing block editor instead of Gutenberg.
  • On /gutenberg/ we should explain the goals of the Gutenberg project. We should link to that new block editor page but also explain Phase 2 and 3 and what we’re currently doing in Phase 2. We could then link this page from /about/roadmap/ too. This could be as simple as linking to https://make.wordpress.org/design/tag/gutenberg-weekly/ initially or more if we have people with time and inspiration to build that.

I’d love feedback on all of the above in the comments 🙂
