s/minor/important/, which is the severity used for policy violations that
don't qualify as release-critical.
And in this case, yes, the bugs should be filed as important rather than
serious; the etch RC policy claims they should be serious, but it also does
this in the section on "autobuilding" -- if no one has found any problems
autobuilding these packages before now, despite multiple full-archive
rebuilds over the past year, then it's a bug in the etch RC policy to
suggest that these should be RC when they don't cause practical problems.
