why is the urgency in the changelog just "medium" when the bug has a severity of "grave"?
Shouldn't that be enough for high?

And thanks for the quick reaction/fix, good job!

The changelog severities don't mean anything in Ubuntu.

Ubuntu's CVEs aren't tracked by severity, those are our internal priority for fixing them.

All security bugs in Debian have a severity of "grave".
