 @cathibosco1 -
 I know @gidgey and I have talked in the past that a critical need for
 W.org sites to succeed in the transition to Gutenberg is going to be not
 only community support, but documentation. Maybe this is something the
 marketing team can help construct? Essentially,

 I think there's a few links that @JoshuaWold and I are thinking of:
 - An "About Gutenberg" page
 - A "How to Switch" guide (In particular, your copy block should link to
 the transition page described here)
 - A "Don't be afraid, Gutenberg doesn't kill your classic" page

 The last one should also be described in our draft help text, e.g.
 > If you aren't ready to switch yet to the new editor, Classic will be
 around for a while. Make sure you keep the classic plugin activated and
 updated. Read more about this.
