#4533: Update & standardize broken/missing showcase links on homepage templates

 Priority:  high            |  Milestone:
Component:  General         |   Keywords:  seo
 Dozens of our localised homepages link to invalid/broken/missing showcase

 E.g., see the "WordPress Users" section in the bottom right of:
 - https://ido.wordpress.org/
 - https://gu.wordpress.org/
 - https://kal.wordpress.org/

 Noteably, from this small sample:
 - The Rolling Stones website is no longer powered by WP -
 - The CNN tag is empty - https://wordpress.org/showcase/tag/cnn/
 - The Motley Crue showcase page returns a 404 error -

 This is more than a little embarrassing (and harmful from an SEO / quality
 perspective), and I think it calls for a degree of standardization of this
 component across localized homepages.

 Can we pick three prominent showcase entries, and update + manage these
