I am incredibly sad to see @RianRietveld's announcement today. This is a huge hit, and *should* prompt the #WordPress core and #Gutenberg teams to reconsider and reexamine their priorities.

I'm not a core contributor, but I do follow along in the WP Slack. @RianRietveld (and others, especially @afercia!) have done an extraordinary job working to address a11y issues in WordPress as a whole and Gutenberg in particular.
There are others in the community with accessibility expertise, but relatively few who have the bandwidth to put in the hard work of organizing and managing an open source team.

I'm glad Rian will still be involved in WP. But that leadership will be sorely missed.

#gutenberg En France on peut rouler sur la route (être sur le web) dans notre voiture (CMS) et on roule encore à droite (WordPress) avec le volant à gauche (TinyMCE). Vous l'avez ? Je peux threader ?
En septembre nous allons devoir avoir une voiture qui aura un volant à droite (Gutenberg), votre voiture pourra s'adapter gratuitement à ce changement, vous pouvez même déjà tester de le mettre à droite et revenir à gauche, mais en septembre, il faudra qu'il soit à droite.
L'idée d'avoir ce volant à droite sera validée si 100000 voitures font le test. 100000 c'est peu et ce n'est que du test, ça ne veut pas dire "ok c'est super je garde". Avoir 100000 tests sur autant de voitures, c'est facile.

My concern with WordPress #Gutenberg is that WordPress core developers don't have anyone to nag them with the authoritative voice of the user.

Let me explain...
Here's what I mean. I've worked at 3 software companies and I've seen a dynamic play out that drives great product development.

Great products are developed when Sales and Support lobby Engineering over The Roadmap.
When Support has to save customer after customer because of the same problem, you best believe they will be in Engineering's ear

When a Sales woman loses a deal (and her commission) because of the lack of a feature, you better believe Engineering will hear about it

I think we will look back at 2017 and see it as the year the #WordPress project started to fracture. As much as the community desperately wants to see WordPress as an enterprise CMS, projects like #Gutenberg show it is anything but.
Gutenberg is a phenomenal piece of software and everyone involved in it should be proud of what they have achieved. But we also shouldn't be afraid to call it what it is. It's a move toward WordPress being a site builder.
It's a shift away from fellow PHP-based CMSs like @CraftCMS, #EE, @statamic, @getgrav, @grabaperch, @drupal and the countless other custom-field based CMSs out there. It's a move away from one of the key features of a real enterprise ready CMS. Native structured content.
