In addition to release criteria, it might be prudent to have some sort
of  periodic comprehensive quality checkpoint and have some some sort of
criteria for continuing to accept new features.  Folks get so head down
on their tasks, but sometimes the big picture needs looking at.  I think
at least a "Regression" checkbox in  Jira could  flag regressions and we
could set some sort of minimum acceptability standard for that.
