  • we get practracker on master, where it is most useful
  • we keep practracker in alphas, where we still get some large code changes
  • we don't have to worry about practracker for backports:
    • we rely on the existing backport triage process to maintain code quality in backport branches
    • we don't need practracker for backport branches, because we (usually) don't make large changes to backport branches

0.4.0 doesn't have practracker; this can be an 041 ticket, I believe.

Here's how we do this change:
nickm: I think it would be removing "check-best-practices" from "check-local"

This is causing more CI failures than we are comfortable with.

Gaba, this is a practracker bug fix, so it belongs in Sponsor 31.
