Eventually Launchpad is likely to provide statistics and graphs of open
bug reports by Importance for Ubuntu as a whole, for help in release
management.

These will be somewhat misleading if Importance has been measured
relative to the individual package, rather than relative to Ubuntu as a
whole. For example, a bug that makes a package unusable for some people
may be Critical relative to that package, but only High relative to
Ubuntu if hardly anyone uses that package.
