Hi there. I've created a 1.16.0 release milestone and put a few issues on it.
Every release there are a few bugs that must be fixed prior to release. When these bugs are regressions they are tracked well during release triage. But there are usually a few critical bugs that are not regressions and every time I see one I feel a pang of anxiety, and just make a personal note to track it.
So this time I created a milestone and put a few bugs on it. I'd enourage teams to use these when they come across similar issues. There's some overlap here with the release milestone predictions thread I'm trying to maintain as well.
I've updated the release triage process to include release milestones.
