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...
