It was my impression that an identified bug is a blocking issue.
Is it difficult to solve? If so, maybe that we can postpone it, and add a
warning in the release notes (?).

This, in my opinion, is not blocking. Maybe the design must be improved (as
your own usage has shown already, it seems) but it could be done in 4.0.
This design issue should not delay the release of 3.0.
Of course, you can do whatever changes you think would be for the better.

Same for me (first _major_ release).

Those who know what must be done, could you please post here some pointers
to a document that decribe the currently recommended and necessary steps for
preparing a release?
