Scala 2.12.17 release planning

This thread is for updates and discussions about the upcoming Scala 2.12.17 release.

Scala 2.12.16 (released June 10) included one regression. A fix has already been merged, and we said we’d release that fix in no less than “2–3 months”.

If you’re aware of anything else you think ought to be considered a blocker for this release, please let us know, either by commenting on the appropriate ticket or PR, or by replying on this thread.

At present there are no known blockers and no open issues or PRs on the 2.12.17 milestones in scala/bug and scala/scala.

The most significant changes already merged are listed here:

If https://github.com/scala/scala/pull/10064 gets merged for 2.13.9, it would be nice to have it backported in time for 2.12.17 too, for consistency and ease of cross-compilation.
