Last I looked (which was a while ago) there was no apparent definition
of that these mean. Let me think:
Critical - system unusable
Serious - system usable with some impairment, or critical but with a
Moderate - causes occasional outages, misleading diagnostic messages
Cosmetic - spelling/grammar errors
Enhancement Request - not exactly a bug, but ....
Everyone would probably agree that, if the system won't boot, that is
critical. I would expect such a critical error would be a candidate
Probably, most would also reckon that a daily crash would qualify as
critical, as would any major component such as X failing.
As a user, I see Xen failures as critical. I bought a computer, with
hardware virtualisation, just so I could use Xen. _I_ might accept that,
on the above scale, it might be classified as "serious," but anything
less would annoy me.
