Well, we must keep the bugzilla working. For example, after an update in
mageia 1, sometimes the maintainer forget to reassign the bug to QA.

I was planned to send weekly bug news, but I must better organise my
free time. :)
(And now, as we have maintenairs, this is less important. I think)

For the other part I don't know.
(I'am also a new bug man)

Yes sorry I was confuse, I like more 'bugsquad' than 'triage team'
