This is why its important to use a scoring method to assess "Stable
enough to release". Many variables that influence the readiness of the
release will not be binary (0/1 or yes/no). Its better to score on a
wider scale (1 to 10 or 1 to 100) and then weight it so that different
variables weigh in differently and give us a composite score.
