Package: reportbug
Version: 5.1.1
Severity: wishlist

This suggestion comes after sending a BR against release.d.o to
request for an urgency bump for a package of mine.

I like the use of the BTS for release-related things, with various
templates for common actions requested to the release team.It could be
good to have a template for "urgency bump" requests, when one wants to
request raising (or lowering) the urgency of a given package in

The template could ask for the source package name, current urgency
and target urgency, as well as, of course, a rationale.
