YMMV. Well, I dont take breaking our quality promise or blatantly violating policy lightly, quite the opposite :-) But, the impact of those bugs besides that really basically aint _existing_ while RC bugs for real block testing migration and thus block getting testing into an even more awesome state than it already is :-) That's why I think important is right here. (And in the beginning of my piuparts work I filed some of these bugs as serious and the feedback I got made me think about this quite a bit. Also it's usually "nicer" to file important bugs and get them fixed eventually then having to argue with angry maintainers about severities while those easy bugs are not dealt with because of emotions... Should the consensus become to treat these issues are RC I'm happy to do so. Policy is _our_ friend. :-D) > In any case, please file them with some > usertagging, so that if you file them "important" and if we want, we can > later on bump their severity (or vice versa of course).
