Arguably that bug should be severity important.

Basically users end up with an unusable 'rescue' boot menu option if 
they chose not to set a root password during install.

See #977358 for a thorough explanation and workarounds (one being 
editing the kernel command line, which kind of defeats the purpose of 
having the menu entry in the first place).

Bug#977358: release-notes: document how to make the rescue mode usable if no root password is set (buster)

("rescue mode" should probably have been "rescue boot entry", to avoid 
confusion with D-Is rescue mode)

Kind regards,
