This is a placeholder issue for all Drupal.org (websites/infra) issues that block release of Drupal 8.
See infrastructure blocker for Drupal 8.0.0 (issues tagged in issue queues outside of the core queue) (and the related issues in the sidebar). Only use that tag on issues NOT in the d8 core queue. Issues in the d8 core queue blocking d8 release are Critical and dont need a tag.
It's possible we actually could release Drupal 8 without these things being fixed, but it'd definitely suck.
This issue is postponed on the relevant drupal.org issues.
8.0.0 release candidate blockers
(unless we want to keep manually updating fallback versions for core in core's PHP)
8.0.0 release blockers
To allow Drupal to play nicely with the rest of the PHP community and Packagist we should use SemVer, current consensus is CORE.MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH.
We need to understand how to push modules to Packagist under the drupal namespace. This is currently locked down to a select few people.
