How would you rate the severity of this problem or report?

1 critical        makes unrelated software on the system (or the whole system) break, or causes serious data
                  loss, or introduces a security hole on systems where you install the package.
2 grave           makes the package in question unusable by most or all users, or causes data loss, or
                  introduces a security hole allowing access to the accounts of users who use the package.
3 serious         is a severe violation of Debian policy (that is, the problem is a violation of a 'must' or
                  'required' directive); may or may not affect the usability of the package. Note that non-
                  severe policy violations may be 'normal,' 'minor,' or 'wishlist' bugs. (Package maintainers
                  may also designate other bugs as 'serious' and thus release-critical; however, end users
                  should not do so.). For the canonical list of issues worthing a serious severity you can
                  refer to this webpage: .
4 important       a bug which has a major effect on the usability of a package, without rendering it completely
                  unusable to everyone.
5 does-not-build  a bug that stops the package from being built from source. (This is a 'virtual severity'.)
6 normal          a bug that does not undermine the usability of the whole package; for example, a problem with
                  a particular option or menu item.
7 minor           things like spelling mistakes and other minor cosmetic errors that do not affect the core
                  functionality of the package.
8 wishlist        suggestions and requests for new features.
