Ahmad - I agree that improving bug responsiveness can also be done from 
within the triage team, and that this team severely suffered from 
understaffing - even without additional tasks on their slate.

To get a better idea about the quantitative requirements (and an idea on 
the X and Y of Michael Scherrer): how many active members are there at 
present in the Mandriva triage team? Given the present size of the 
Mandriva user community (and similar activeness of team members), by 
what factor would you whish to increase the size of the team?

There is also a question of motivation: it is so much more motivating to 
work in a team where you can see the positive results of your work - if 
bugzilla triage and and bug handling gets a more positive image (maybe 
that is also an issue of internal PR), it will be easier to recruit 
volonteers - here lies the principal reason why I only considered to, 
but did not, respond to the "join the triage team" post in Mandriva. And 
motivation becomes even more important in the Mageia volonteer-only 
environment - very OK today, but tomorrow?
