Hi Petr,

The blocker criteria would be quite useful ;-) Thank you!

For the process to nominate a blocker, is there a specific reason to report a nomination 
twice (1 in mailing list, 2 in bugzilla)?

You may nominate blocker bugs using the libreoffice mailing list. Please use the subject: 
Nominating bug xxxx as blocker for LibO-X.Y.Z release
You should also add a dependency to the meta bug: 
LibO-3.3 - bug #31865

A potential problem of the twice nominating is reporter may forget to do another process 
after finishing one step. e.g. what if he/she only sends a mail and forget comment on Bugzilla? 
Then more documentation effort will be needed to keep 2 sets of information 'sync'.

A uniform reporting path might make it more manageable. Can we just add libreoffice 
mailing list to a CC list of the meta bug or something like that. Since the release version
is included in the Meta bug title, we would not be likely missing new blocker information 
in the mailing list. For the detailed bug list, we just need to check the dependency fields 
by clicking meta bug URL inside the mail.

Best wishes,
