Hello Kubernetes Developers,
For the last few releases, KEP authors have been including Production Readiness responses in their KEPs. Through 1.20, filling out these sections was required, but PRR approval was not. Now the time has come, with 1.21, to require PRR approval for a KEP to be targeted to the release.
This is implemented in the following PRs, which are held for lazy consensus until Monday, December 21st at noon Pacific standard time.
The last PR requires that a few KEPs that had already set their `latest-milestone` to 1.21 be updated. Those will need PRR approval prior to the Enhancements Freeze for 1.21 (date TBD), like all other KEPs. Because of how the tooling works, we had to tweak the `latest-milestone`. We will tag the KEP authors on that PR directly.
