The packages don't build on the Hurd. Bugs which cause the package to not
build on some architecture have always been considered as bugs of severity
"important". It's unfortunate that the BTS doesn't make a difference between
released and unreleased architectures [1] and maintained and not maintained
packages, but this is not a sound reason to strip the severity.

In other words, please reverse the severity change. I have talked to Steve,
and he will incorporate my patches and then they can be properly closed.


[1] We don't even know if the Hurd will or won't be released with the next
Debian version.
