Mir bug importance

Kevin Gunn, correct me if I'm wrong, but the way we were using bugs was
Critical = Needs to be fixed for 13.10 release.
 refers to the Ubuntu bug importances, not project bug importances. The
reason for that page is there was inconsistency between different Ubuntu
packages. As an upstream project, I don't think we have to follow these
When you change the importance, Launchpad has the following description for
Undecided - Not decided yet. Maybe needs more discussion.
Critical - Fix now or as soon as possible.
High - Schedule to be fixed soon.
Medium - Fix when convenient, or schedule to fix later.
Low - Fix when convenient.
Wishlist - Not a bug. It's an enhancement/new feature.
Which I think are good guides for how we should use them. i.e. Critical =
fix now, regardless of how much damage the actual bug causes. A missing
feature that needs to be done before release could be critical, or a
feature that's blocking other teams.
Note, I really don't understand the above definition for Medium, especially
how it compares to Low :)
