What official Dreamwidth communities are there?

We have a number of official (site sponsored and site run) communities on Dreamwidth. We use them for a number of purposes, from discussing how to use the site to sharing information about its day-to-day running with you. Which of them you follow are entirely up to you, but we strongly suggest that everyone should follow both [site community profile] dw_news and [site community profile] dw_maintenance in order to keep informed of things you'll need to know (for instance, planned downtime) and things you'll want to know (for instance, the release of new features).

You can recognise our official communities easily, since they're preceeded by [info - site community] rather than [info - community] but for easier reference here is a list of official Dreamwidth communities and a short description of their focus.
