Description

Hello friends. Posting here per advice from this conversation in the core slack: https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/C02QB8GMM/p1587150825296600?thread_ts=1587140490.291500&cid=C02QB8GMM (link requires registration https://make.wordpress.org/chat/)

Per https://make.wordpress.org/design/2020/04/20/next-steps-for-dashicons/, the Dashicons project is closing to new icon requests. The GitHub project has been updated to reflect this: https://github.com/WordPress/dashicons/blob/master/README.md

The next step is to update the Dashicons resource page, https://developer.wordpress.org/resource/dashicons/, which I understand has hardcoded text that lives here: https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/browser/sites/trunk/wordpress.org/public_html/wp-content/themes/pub/wporg-developer/page-dashicons.php

Would very much appreciate help making this happen.

Suggested changes:

Replace this:

For new icon requests, please <a href="https://github.com/WordPress/dashicons/issues/new?labels=request">create a new issue on the Dashicons github</a>.

With this:

The Dashicons project is no longer accepting icon requests. Here's why: <a href="https://make.wordpress.org/design/2020/04/20/next-steps-for-dashicons/">Next steps for Dashicons</a>.

Or it could even be simpler:

The Dashicons project is no longer accepting icon requests.

Thank you!
