There is action going on in the #wordpress wastelands: A new sibling called ClassicPress, with the goal to provide WP without Gutenberg and LTS updates for the next 2 years to come.
Which made my heart beat lighter again, because with #gutenborg in the core, the near future looked really grim.
@ginsterbusch If it gets people off Medium, I'm all for it. But it's important to keep things compatible and have the old editor as a choice imo.
@raucao yes, compatibility is exactly that, at least for the LTS branch, what the whole hassle is all about.
