I'm stepping back from WordPress core involvement for a few months because the atmosphere around here lately stinks. I'm a fan of Gutenberg, but when valid criticism is *continually* met with defensiveness and correction instead of open-mindedness, it's not healthy for anyone.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I'm not going far, and I'll get straight back into things in the new year. In the meantime I'll be working with a team at Human Made building some *very* cool stuff on Gutenberg for an enterprise client :-)

I've read about accessibility problems, and only then realized how poorly accessible is. Overall it feels a modern editor, but also a turning point in WP, for good and bad. I hope it will prompt a review of the WP project, maybe bring LTS and true semver, among other things.

For the latter, I don't expect WordPress will change. But if you want those things consider the forks ClassicPress and/or CalmPress as those thing are either planned or likely to happen.

😞 I hope my post was not the final straw here. I didn’t mean for it to be a combative thing, but I probably don’t write enough posts to clearly articulate my thoughts. We need people like you in the community.

Taking care of yourself is most certainly the best you can do at the moment. So, take care!
