Holger Levsen <email@example.com> (18/04/2009): > I wonder why you filed these bugs with severity "normal": > http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?tag=edos-relation-warning;firstname.lastname@example.org Looking at this list: - #468423 and #468425 got minor, rationale was given. - #404339 is normal, but the same rationale would apply. - #285040 still applies, but the Policy (now 5.6.12) still says should. - #518400 probably will go away, but I'd say that providing an illegal package name might not do as much harm as a buggy version number, so it probably wouldn't deserver more than important. > I'd expect that illegal package names and version numbers could break > some tools, so I would have filed them as important as least, also > since very few packages are affected. Those tools should raise appropriate errors, not just “break”. > Can you explain your reasoning? Is it because you haven't experienced > any breakage? Look at the actual bugreports? (Arguing normal vs. important looks like time loss to me, but YMMV.) Mraw, KiBi.
