It’s been marked as a P2, and that means it immediately drops out of the focus of the release team. After the RC, they are only looking at P0 and P1 bugs.

Agree, the word deadlock in the bug report should have caused some warning bells to ring, at the same time the reporters and packagers should raise critical reports for them to the attention of the release team as quickly as possible.

Agree. But as said, I hope that we can get a 5.6.1 out within a couple of weeks of 5.6.0. Until then, the packagers can apply the patch that fixes/works around the bug on top of 5.6.0.
