Are you volunteering to be the release manager?

Otherwise, the project does what the people doing the work are
interested in, and telling someone you think they're wrong won't (and
shouldn't) change anything.

Plus, telling someone that the work they want to do (likely for their
own benefit) is "effectively doing nothing" is very negative and
harmful.  Please don't do it again.

You're assuming some added feature caused the problem.  It could have
been caused by an internal refactoring or some bugfix.  Perhaps you
could triage this a bit and see if the change was intentional or not?
