Right now only those in the "relman" group can +grant or -deny the
"release blocker" flag.  There are only 8 people in that group right

Anyone in the "canconfirm" group is able to request this flag.  Not
everyone is a member of "canconfirm".  There are only 559 members,
mainly those who had elevated permissions in the legacy BZ instance.
It also includes everyone with an Apache email address.

So I think we're doing what you are suggesting.  We're discussing the
bugs where someone has requested "release blocker" status, and then
decided whether to grant or deny that status.

Discuss now, discuss later, it is all the same thing, right?
