So, by that thought, if a bug meet the blocking criteria but have not
caught in the previous release by a mistake of the team (as no one pointed
before as blocker bug) that bug can no more be blocker?
It's certainly an argument that we're at least not making things worse, and
gets weighed against everything else in making our decision.
I'm not saying that these in particular shouldn't be blockers, but in
general, for a while there, "blocker" was used as a forcing function to kind
of hold the release hostage until attention was finally gotten on something
that wasn't getting it. We try not to do that anymore -- there is the
Prioritized Bugs process, or just various workgroup issue queues, for a lot
of those kinds of things now.
