I couldn't agree more, Eli.

We're all volunteers, so I understand people are free to work on whatever
pleases them. But if those reading this are interested in the quality of our
next Emacs release, please dedicate your next several weeks to reducing the
blocking list to zero, even if that means just removing them from the list
after reviewing them.

Once we hit zero, and can stay at zero for at least several days, we will ship
and shift to 25.2/26.1 quickly after (there are already a few fixes queued up
for 25.2, as I understand; and development for 26.1 is currently underway).
