Bug#283648: mueller7-dict: Debconf abuse : please lower the priority of the questions

Package: mueller7-dict
Severity: normal

This package inputs users on any kind of install in Russian language. The
default locale for Russian is non UTF8 and this package is installed by
tasksel for every Russian install.

There is no point at using the critical debconf priority for the displayed
notes. All good practice developer documentations assimilate this to debconf
abuse. The default medium priority should be enough for this.

I intend to NMU this package for solving this bug which breaks unattended
Russian installs. The NMU will fix 236774/239746 as well. This NMU will be
made with a short delay because:

-we need a fixed version in sarge
-the package is obviously under-maintained (236774/239746 should have been
merged for a while)
