Subject Re: Revisit Process for creating Blocker bugs

-1 blocker means blocker and blocks a release. No one should be able
to block a release on their own. We should treat the critical category
as a staging area for those issues.

 I heard and do understand that someone can create a blocker defect and may not actively involve
in closing it out and it doesn't help the product.  I am not clear if we are doing this at
and around RC time - however it doesn't matter.

categorizing a defect, meaning a blocker defect being created as a Critical and opening up
a discussion to review.  If no one supports the defect/issue, we will be putting out a release
that has showstopper issues.
