My reply is to the best of my knowledge, but please check with some one 
who has been around a lot longer than I !!

According to the old wiki:
The Bug Squad is a group of volunteer members of the Mageia community 
who help with bug-related tasks, including triage, maintenance and 
monitoring. Bug Squad members make up the triage team, whose job - as 
outlined in the Bug Policy 
<http://www.mageia.org/wiki/doku.php?id=bug_policy> - is to filter all 
bug reports in order to ensure that only valid, complete reports are 
sent to the development team for action, and to help reporters to file 
complete reports. Bug Squad members also help to clean up old issues in 
the Bugzilla database.

So we are supposed to clean up old issues. And AFAIK the team has 
already done more than that, like report on how many bugs couldn't be 
assigned because of missing maintainers. So I guess the team is already 
more a bug team than a triage team.

Well, if everyone agrees that this is part of our job, we need to make a 
page on Bug report management, too ;)

Personally, I don't like the name "Triage Team" and if I understood 
right, Manuel doesn't like the name Bug Squad (please confirm or 
disconfirm, Manuel)

I think Bug Squad is funny, but I like Bug Team more.
