Rachel Nabors leaving Meta

After almost three years, today is my last day on the React team at Meta. When I joined, I had a list of things I wanted to do for the React community to "push the ball in the right direction"... https://t.co/hxTlKUzUlF

i understood the docs revamp to be rachel's project, so i'm not super sure what her leaving means for future changes. sounds like dan is owning a lot of the writing for it now, but mark made a really good comment on the initial docs issue https://github.com/reactjs/reactjs.org/issues/3308#issuecomment-1051055907

@bobaekang @acemarke I think it can be done. MDN for instance is largely written by community contributors. Of course, they also are organized by fulltime employees and are often paid on contract. I hope React/Meta will find the resources to continue investing in their community

@bobaekang @acemarke Could also go the Vue route and let a strong community leader lead and delegate the effort. But that would require a level of giving up control and investing in community management from the React team

@bobaekang @acemarke This worked really well for https://t.co/2Qb1172lnw. I ran an API docs drive and recruited the community to help. @Simek emerged as a deputy editor for the docs after that. Love the RN dynamic! Would love to see the same model with React!

@bobaekang @acemarke @Simek @JSPartyFM You might need to ask a different question first: Why hasn't anyone been leading?
