it is not contradictory and have I pointed out that we don't release if
there are valid concerns.

We will release when we don't have critical show stopper issues. And
discussion on show stopper issues should take place on ooo-dev when issues
marked as critical.
I don't think we have to define the rules for show stopper issues again and
can use the existing ones (e.g. crashes, data loss, ...)

I hope people will take it serious and don't vote against a release without
valid concerns.
