What is the criteria for the severity you set? According to the thread
on debian-devel[1], Joerg Jaspert suggested[2] normal severity and
a direct bug to ftp.debian.org Cced to the maintainer if the source
package is empty. Santiago Villa suggested[3] wishlist severity.
Everybody was opposed to RC.

I updated it, and I will review it again with Clément. What still needs
to be done is to double-check the ones with no bug submitted and to
track the bugs submitted on ftp.debian.org in order to keep the list up
to date.
