The final decision about bug severities has the package maintainer
(and in some cases the release team or ctte). So you have either
accept his decision or stand up and actually help him to fix that
issue instead of just insulting him (which surely doesn't help at all,
more to the contrary).

So if the package maintainer says, this is of severity normal and
won't get fixed, it is of severity normal and won't get fixed.

In contrary: It would be likely a issue of the severity "serious" to
fix this bug due to license issues; c.f. the Debian Free Software

If anyone thinks that is not the case, then that person (and not the
package maintainer as he already made up his mind) should take action
and discuss that with the Debian legal team. Be reminded that Debian
is a do-ocracy and entirely made up of volunteers.

Please learn what these statements mean before using them.

Tagging a bug as wontfix doesn't close it. It remains open forever,
but with a note that it will not get fixed.
