I knew I forgot something -- BUGS.  One item left from that file.

I'll wait for alfs-log, no need for another 50 messages to this list.

Looking at values and reading their descriptions at
http://bugs.linuxfromscratch.org/bug_status.html#severity,
they don't seem to belong to any of those.

I could rate them from 1-5 if that was possible, but if I had to
choose a name, I'd say they're normal. ;)

Didn't know about that.  And if it's a "house rule", then sure, I'll
use it.

Although I have to say, I see this as a waste of Priority field.  All
priorities seem to represent a state of the bug that can already be
represented with other Bugzilla fields (P5 with UNCONFIRMED, P4 with
NEW, P3 with FIXED, P2 and P1 with Target Milestone).  But I'm sure
you have already discussed this, so I don't want to go there. :)

1.1.8 is already ready to be released.  After that, I would
concentrate on (now) P1 bugs and maybe even release it as 1.2.0.
