I think that it would be better to leave details of the BTS out of this
GR. After all, we could decide that bugs are ranked from 0 to 5, with 0
being the "release-critical" level. This wording writes in stone that we
have an "important" bug severity.
Also, the release team has the responsibility to decide which bugs are
release-critical, what this statement does should be to say clearly that
the bug makes the package unsuitable for release (or not), not just say
something about its severity.
How about something like:
It is a bug when packages should work without systemd but they do not,
but that bug is not release-critical (it does not make the affected
package unsuitable for release). Developers may perform non-maintainer
uploads to fix these bugs.
