Says who?

Severity This field describes the impact of a bug.

Urgent   This report is an urgent issue and should be fixes as soon as possible.
High 	     Problem due to crashes, loss of data, severe memory, leak, etc.
Medium  It's a bug that should be fixed eventually.
Low 	     Problem is minor loss of function, or other problem where
easy workaround is present.
