Open floor

In preparations for the Gutenberg callout, we’re organizing the plugin support forums a bit. We’ve added a master list (much like we do for major core releases) that will contain links to resources most commonly referenced, and known compatibility issues we’ve discovered.

We have also invited members from the hosting team to stick around in our channel and let us know of any recurring issues they discover so that we can try and gather them in one location for the whole community to access.

An initial list of FAQ’s we find likely is being gathered in an open Google Docs document, which will be migrated to the more public thread for release.

And as we expect a bit of noise early on, we’ll be following our usual guidelines for a WordPress major release, keeping channel clutter out so we don’t miss important details.
