So we just continue as is then? You have any suggests to what we change?

We currently allow releases that are not strictly legal. This would be a step backwards.

We currently allow podlings to graduate with some issues as longs as the PPMC is dealing with
them. This would be a step backwards.

I mean just changing this page [1] , podlings can update their own disclaimers.

What about unknown issues?

I assume you mean “not fully compliant”?
