<!> This is a RM's TODO list for the Buster release, which might not be authorative or complete.

The following things need to be done for the Buster release:

Tagging RC Bugs

At some point, we will have to tag the remaining RC bugs to filter what should be removed/deferred/fixed. It's possible to define our own sorting criteria by sending the following request to control@bugs.debian.org:

user release.debian.org@packages.debian.org
´╗┐usercategory buster-sort
  * Codename [tag=]
    + Blockers for Codename [buster-is-blocker]
    + Planned for removal [buster-will-remove]
    + Ignored for Codename [buster-can-defer]

Then, usertagged bugs will be listed on:

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?users=release.debian.org@packages.debian.org;tag=buster-can-defer;tag=buster-will-remove;tag=buster-is-blocker;ordering=buster-sort
