Control: severity -1 whislist


I don't want to start a severity war, but I count on having
netfilter-persistent when I install new systems using stretch.

From the bts documentation [1]

    makes the package in question unusable or mostly so, or causes data
    loss, or introduces a security hole allowing access to the accounts
    of users who use the package.

    a bug which has a major effect on the usability of a package,
    without rendering it completely unusable to everyone.

    the default value, applicable to most bugs.

    for any feature request, and also for any bugs that are very
    difficult to fix due to major design considerations.

This bug is far from grave. It does not causes data loss,  it does
not allow access to accounts of users that use it
(it won't protect other services but that's a bug on the services
itself or plain misconfiguration)

Therefore, I'm downgrading this bug severity to whislist.

I think it would be a good idea to have a debconf question asking if
the user wants the behavior requested in this bug report.
If the user says YES then create the file
effectively disabling the network if the firewall fails to load.
The default answer for that debconf question should be NO.
