I think that's different if the DD is also upstream. Yes, if the DD is
waiting for someone else to make the release, that could be a problem.
(Especially with a large project that has slipped out of the 'release
early, release often' approach that I share.)

Thanks to one and all for the quick replies - I think I'd tag this thread as "pending" at this point. :-)

"issue is resolved, no further work required unless something really
big has been missed by the process so far"
