WordPress Tavern is a site focused on all things WordPress. Most likely it is the most well-perceived and respected source on all things WP, Gutenberg, BuddyPress, bbPress, and any project under the Automattic umbrella.

Responsiveness toward both parties would help demonstrate the inner makings of a responsive operating system for the web:
