So, we do follow the process (fairly well, IMO). However, the piece
we're waiting on to assert this tag is this:

    In addition, projects assert that:

        It uses an automated test to verify that configuration files are
        forward-compatible from release to release and that this policy is
        not accidentally broken (for example, a gating grenade test).

Given we don't have gating upgrade tests yet, we cannot yet assert this

That's a great question, and I'm not sure. Maybe OSC folks can comment
their thoughts. Added their tag in the subject.

In general, I think we should just follow the standard policy for this.
