It turns out those things are intertwined.

It turns out that making it easier for people to do 'X' just isn't a
handbook and a printed book - it's community building, communication
and inclusiveness.

All the ease of use in the world doesn't matter if people don't know
about it and don't feel a part of of something.

If you want to avoid the community building, then it's just a tool -
and you should market it as such. :)
