 There are [https://make.wordpress.org/community/handbook/wordcamp-
 wordcamp-org-site/#additional-plugins several plugins] installed on
 WordCamp.org that aren't network-activated, but that organizers
 occasionally want to activate on their sites. Currently, they have to
 request a member of the community team manually activate it for them.

 WordPress 4.9 [https://make.wordpress.org/core/2017/10/15/improvements-
 for-roles-and-capabilities-in-4-9/ enhances the `activate_plugin` and
 `deactivate_plugin` capability checks to accept a specific plugin]. That
 means we can now easily let organizers activate those plugins themselves.

 Activating or deactivating any plugin not in in the whitelist should still
 require the `manage_network` capability.
