Comment (by ryelle):

 > For example, if you're logged in as an author and not an editor. In this
 case the Customize Your Site and Edit styles links won't work.

 The welcome panel only shows up if you have `edit_theme_options`, which
 works for the Customizer link… but I realize I don't know which
 capabilities are needed for the site editor/styles. Is is still

 > Perhaps in this case we could swap the third section out for one that
 links to the theme selector? […] Alternatively we could just show the old
 welcome box if a classic theme is activated.

 This new box is much nicer :) I think linking off to the Theme page would
 be fine, but we'd need different copy again. What about using this area to
 link off to user documentation about block-based themes, if such a page

 Sounds like this patch needs more copy work— for the last two sections
 when a user doesn't have a block-based theme.
