The Growth team feature set contains features that require experienced users to participate: the help panel and the mentorship module. As we scale Growth features to 100 wikis, we know that we will encounter wikis who do not have active help desk. Some of those wikis will need time to develop those things, and some will never develop them.
We want to be able to deploy, to a given wiki, all the Growth features that do not require help desk to work, and be able to separately deploy the remaining features when ready. That means we want to have a way to deploy our features without the question-asking feature of help panel. Without this capability, the help panel should only contain the helpful links and the search.
Perhaps a good thing to think about (in relation to T246939), is whether wikis could turn on those remaining features just by slotting a help desk page or a mentor list page into an on-wiki config, so that the Growth team doesn't have to actively deploy the remaining features later.
