A serious bug is, quoting , "a severe violation of Debian policy
(roughly, it violates a "must" or "required" directive), or, in the
package maintainer's or release manager's opinion, makes the package
unsuitable for release."
I checked again the Debian policy but couldn't spot anything relevant,
so it would be nice to get a pointer, or alternatively an argument why
the package should be unsuitable for release, especially so late into
the freeze period.
No Debian user would appreciate losing VDR in wheezy because of a bug
happening in the seldom case someone considers their VDR system so
sensitive in terms of security that they remove capabilities.
Furthermore this bug is possibly security-related but definitely not a
security hazard, which would anyway qualify for grave and not serious.
