      Description

      When moodle.net is closed down in September 2019, the community finder block will no longer be needed.

      In addition to the community finder block, the capabilities moodle/community:add, moodle/community:download and block/community:addinstance should be removed.

      It would be good to remove the block plus caps in 3.7.2, 3.6.6 as well as in 3.8.
