Nothing formal.  As we start looking that way a few people generally shuffle 
through the "Blocker" list to look for actual blockers and get rid of the 
noise.  Since there is no committee that decides what is or isn't a blocker 
we can't just take every bug as an actual blocker.

Really, that depends on the bug.  Generally we fix it, or find a suitable work

Release Engineering in conjunction with QA typically come to an agreement that 
the tree is "good enough".  Sometimes we have to kick decisions up to the 
board on what to do about remaining issues.

They aren't really, officially.  We try to fix the big glaring ones 
immediately after the release to prevent them from happening again the next 
time.  Some previous "blockers" are moved to the next blocker set to be 
reviewed later.

Unlike with RHEL, there is no real good management of the blocker/target bugs 
for Fedora.
