There is a new fork of WordPress, ClassicPress, that will be Gutenberg free and community led. The organizers are looking for people to get involved and help shape the future direction of the project.
You can find out about it at www.classicpress.net, and you can vote on features to include at vote.classicpress.net. There are links on the main site to a Slack channel you can join to be part of the conversation.
It will be interesting to see how this develops, given the mixed reviews of Gutenberg.
