 > Welcome @sarmstead! And @chaion07!
 > Component maintainer @marybaum here. I've taken this page on formally
 after being its informal lead for the last year and a half, since 5.4,
 going through 5.7.
 > The Core team has been discussing ways the page might evolve along with
 the block editor, and how it might reach even more people — and how we the
 community can get really clear on who it's for and what people should get
 out of it.
 > My co-maintainer, Abha Thakor (I will nominate her Wednesday at
 devchat), and I are thinking about how we might surface the content ahead

 at best. I suggest we hold off AT LEAST until Wednesday devchat, and then
 we'll know where we stand.
 > Perhaps.
 > Meantime, gentlemen, welcome aboard!
