First, PR10912 looks like it was fixed in June.

Second, we do not have branch blockers. We have release blockers which are defined in this document:

Release blockers are fixed in TOT and the patches are applied to the branch.

If we had a larger set of volunteers that could help qualify releases AND buildbots to continuously test the new release criteria, then we are willing to expand this criteria. We haven't had a lot of volunteers step up in this area though.
