I am not trying to discourage people from reporting and fixing problems.
I am sorry if what I wrote could be interpreted in this way.

I am just questioning the usefulness of halting the presses and restarting
the soak for another month for something that isn't a security / data
corruption issue. I anticipate that problems of similar severity to this
one will still be discovered after we release 1.10.0, regardless of
whether we release 1.10.0 at end of March or later.

Though maybe my idea of the impact of this bug is wrong?
If this really makes some repositories entirely unusable with authz enabled
then of course it should be considered a blocker. Is it this severe?
