As a dev, i would not be opposed to a person who gives some kind of structured
info about some priority bugs (eg: to a dev mailing list), or possibly via
IRC. (not too often, and mostly about 'forgotten' bugs; or sometimes help with
In real life, mostly this kind of thing happens when a prominent forum member
or a forum leader or a user mailing list prominent member gives a priority
case a "better explanation" of what is going on, sometimes giving small hints
on IRC. (I guess they could be 'bug friends' in that sense)
I might have forgotten triage people, sorry, triage people are important for
the devs and i'm pretty sure they're underappreciated; they too help the
bridge and sometimes are on forums, and urge users to submit a bug report. In
that sense often they are 'bug friends' too.
I don't know if it's required for this kind of bug friends to be official; i
might be inclined to believe they would rather prefer anonymous or even
officious. Also, I'm not even sure who would even want this job...
