Subject Re: remaining 10.2 blocker

Thanks, Kathey. I think this does capture what I mean. I think this is 
your proposal:

Priority - Means "severity" according to the JIRA definitions.

Urgency - Has the common-sense meaning of priority, not to be confused 
with the JIRA sense.

For current 10.2 issues:

 Priority==Blocker => Urgency=Blocker
 Priority==Critical => Urgency=Urgent
 Priority==Major => Urgency=Normal
 Priority==Minor => Urgency=Low
 Priority==Trivial => Urgency=Low
