The bug severities are defined in
http://www.debian.org/Bugs/Developer#severities . Anything that
qualifies as grave or critical still needs to be fixed at this point of
the release, the rest will need to wait for the next one. In practice
this means bugs that cause the software to not work at all, corrupt data
or such. Please file any such bugs you are aware of in the Debian BTS,
preferably with the cherry picked patches included.
