In this episode, John James Jacoby and I discuss the news of the week. We have a candid conversation about what it would be like if Gutenberg were merged into WordPress trunk earlier versus developed as a plugin. We also talk about Classic Editor install numbers, praising forks of WordPress, and some new tools that are available to search Gutenberg blocks. This might be the first episode since Jacoby took over as co-host that we ended the show in under an hour.

Thanks for the mention! I agree with completely with @JJJ, my iteration is early and I wouldn’t be surprised if we see a Blocks tab on wp.org in future.
