The biggest issue is this, I think. We probably need to encode
"Special Blockers" into the Go/No-Go process. I don't think that
assurance that it will be fixed on time is necessarily good enough.
Particularly given the time that it takes stable updates to make it
the mirrors, I'd say that we probably want to say that any such
special blockers have to be queued for stable before the Go/No-Go
decision is made. (This may in some cases mean *during* the Go/No-Go
meeting, of course.)
+1. I think that even 0day bugs should block the release. When the
update for 0day bug would be available after Go/No-Go and we would
found that it is buggy (doesn't fix bug properly or it creates another
problems) then we would end up with unresolved blocker in release time.
Maybe we could add some rule for delaying release in such cases
(something like big red button - stop release now!).
From those two proposed solutions I like the second more. To have
another magic words for White board. As I said I think that 0day
blockers should still block the release. But I agree that we should
treat them differently so we should track them somehow.
