Send update statuses to your repository pull-requests.
You’ve got dozens of pull-requests on hold. Some of them are ready to be merged. But as a release manager, you need to warn everyone with “merge” rights not to merge any of these pull-requests. Because you’re on a hot lava field, you have to stabilize things, etc.
Anyway. Just push a “it’s not cool to merge this” status. And then, when the situation is cooler, just send an update with a green light.
