And I set it as the milestone for Danylo's issue & MR.

One gotcha is that both of these will show up as
completed/closed/merged on the milestone once the MR is merged to
master. At least in some cases it might be better to make a separate
MR for the stable staging branch and set the milestone on that as
well, to make sure they stay on the radar until the fix is on the
stable branch.
