Current Blockers

This page lists all bug reports that have been marked as release blockers, which means that they must be fixed before the next release of Mageia. The bug watcher (QA contact field in bugzilla) is someone who commits to update the bug status comment regularly and tries to get a status from the packagers involved and remind them about the bug if needed. Anyone can be bug watcher.
