Marking a bug as blocking the release does not mean we won't release, because
this would put our release schedule in the hands of anyone capable of setting
such a mark.

What it does mean is: prior to cutting a release tarball, we will have
addressed each bug, where by "address" we mean:

  1. Fix it, or
  2. Defer it to 25.2, or
  3. Re-categorize as not really blocking

It sounds like several of our current "blockers" should not have been marked
such, so it looks like a bug review is in order. I'll put it on my schedule to
go through these and see which ones truly should not ship in 25.1.
