with GNUmed we currently have a case where a bug is not RC regarding the

the influence of this bug might harm the health of patients of the

Doesn't that simply count as severity: grave - "makes the package in
question unusable or mostly so"?

IMHO we should enhance our definition for what
RC critical means.

IMO "grave" doesn't only mean "segfaults at start" etc. but also
"produces garbage, shows completely wrong results, doesn't fulfill its
core purpose, ...".

And BTW IMHO it enter in the "security" related bugs.
