These specific bug reports describe instances where the Debian project
breaks its own promises, which is why their severity is ‘serious’. The
complaint is that positive action is being taken (the tagging of bug
reports so that they are to be ignored for a Debian release) to ensure
that breach occurs.

Every recipient of the social contract's promise is entitled to hold
the Debian project to its promises.
