its not ignoring problems, but just because its a bug in packaging
doesnt immediately make it a blocker issue. many of these packaging
bugs are pre-existing conditions in 2.9, 3.0, 3.1, etc, and we
released those successfully just fine. Packaging bugs are bugs like
anything else, and packaging will never be perfect, we just have to
decide which are blockers.

While I agree with most of the other things you said, I voice some
disagreement here. I'm not sure things like this in contrib should
block a release.

if its so important that it blocks a release, then it should be in our
core product.

That said, this one is trivial to fix, so lets fix it too for the next rc.
