2 normal     a bug that does not undermine the usability of the whole package; for example, a
             problem with a particular option or menu item.

3 minor      things like spelling mistakes and other minor cosmetic errors that do not affect the
             core functionality of the package.

4 wishlist   suggestions and requests for new features.
