Allow Ctrl+Y redo in post editor

Not being able to use Ctrl+Y in the post editor by default goes against the default undo/redo hotkeys for the 85% of desktop users who are not using macOS. Both Ctrl+Y and Ctrl+Shift+Z should redo.

  • Keywords needs-patch added
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 5.5
  • Severity changed from minor to normal
  • Type changed from enhancement to defect (bug)
  • Version set to 5.0

This ticket was discussed during today's accessibility bug-scrub. Given Ctrl + Y worked on Classic Editor and it doesn’t on Gutenberg, this sounds like an a11y regression and a lack of feature parity with the previous editing experience.
