    Description

      The is_blocking concept in the Task API has never really received much interest. The current and original implementation since 2.7 is buggy so it doesn't actually block correctly at all at scale (see MDL-67597). It's also the root cause of scaling issues (mostly mitigated in MDL-67486)

      So proposing to deprecate this completely.
