FWIW, I did not really get the sense at all that people were voting for
it as a blocker purely on the grounds that "we can get a fix in at the

think most release process people think it's a really long time and
hate it (hence the pressure to 'hero' sometimes). Having a *whole week*
to fix a blocker and respin and test, frankly, feels like quite a lot
of time, in a Fedora context.
If there's a consensus that issues are small enough so that the slip can be
shorter, perhaps it'd be appropriate to consider something between the
all-nighter 'hero-ing' and full week slip? Specifically, you guys make a
technical decision that a known fix, respin and test will take two days, so
you just postpone the release by that time, unless that specific process
does not go as expected?
Not really. There are multiple amounts of stuff that has to get done
to get a release out the door with a lot of it in human relations: let
the mirrors know, let the various news groups know, field questions
from press, get usergroups ready. Trying to move it later in the week
from the Tuesdays screws up a lot of people's set timelines.
