extreme critical: when a bug breaks all core , sessions, bootstrap one of  
the form elements or something like that. These are to be fixed  
immediately because Drupal HEAD is not usable at all.

critical bugs render a whole (or most of a) module unusable. Example: you  
can't post a forum topic.

major bugs: a smaller part of a module. You can't add a menu with menu  

-- below these are bugs that do not hold a release --

Normal bugs just bugs, we could even release with these. Just one  
functionality, like the category filter not working on node admin screen.

And minor bugs are cosmetical stuff, notices etc

I know we will not be able to agree on anything, yet I have at least  
tried. For once, think twice before answering.
