``If this bug is not fixed, then the package will be removed from the
  distribution before release. If the package can't reasonably be removed,
  the release will be delayed.''

Fixing release critical bugs in packages like bash is an exercise in
getting the release out on time, in packages like bplay, it's an effort
to keep the package in the distribution.

I don't speak for anyone save myself. PGP encrypted mail preferred.
