«Any bug report against any package whose installation causes their
networking to be broken is to be treated valid and release critical by
the maintainers and the release team. This only applies to packages
which are pulled in because of a user request to install a package whose
primary purpose is something else than to pull in aforementioned
The language can probably be cleaned up a bit.
I also think it's a bad idea, since you're saying that even invalid bug
reports («$USER made dpkg into a shell script that reconfigures the
network if the package installed is NM → RC bug in NM») are valid. I
don't actually think that's your intention.
