This bug (and merged #126968) might have been of severity serious when
filed against defendguin (because it failed to build when a call to
mogrify failed), but it's not a severity serious bug against
imagemagick, since only one of its many commands fails on a small subset
of files. It would make no sense to keep all of imagemagick out of
woody because mogrify fails on _certain_ XPM files.
I would downgrade this bug when filed against imagemagick.
defendguin still needs an RC bug against it because it doesn't build
from source, but a minor or normal bug in one package shouldn't be
escalated to 'serious' because another package uses that feature at
This is only my two cents. Do you guys agree? Or is this standard
Debian procedure and I'm off the wall?
