I'm not the release manager, but my feeling is that, because there is no
proposed resolution of the issue, it can't possibly be a blocker. Only
if a patch is available, waiting for application of that patch may block
the release. Waiting for a patch may cause indefinite delay, which would
be bad.

Of course, for releases managed by Barry (i.e. 2.6), Barry said that you
can declare anything a blocker - whether it then will block the release
is a different matter (and one that Barry then decides on a case-by-case
