I think we need clarification on the definition and usage of "blocker". I typically would use it to mean that DMD cannot be released until the bug is fixed. Other people seem to be using it in a more liberal sense.

http://d.puremagic.com/issues/page.cgi?id=fields.html#importance says "[b]locks development and/or testing work." It's not entirely clear whether that refers to DMD development or development of anything else using DMD.

I think I might've actually used to use your definition of "blocks DMD" but have since lapsed into "blocks my work"...

According to the list of all new and old blockers, usage varies:
