Here again, have a strong leader to drive the process would help immensely.
I can't drive it, history has proven that. But I'd like to help. I'd
love it if we'd be able to set aside a week every release, and just
focus on driving people into the bugsquad and training them to do a
good job at it. And we as a community make a commitment to do that
every release to refill the ranks because getting people doing that
job has high impact across the whole project. I expect a high turn
over rate in triaging, because its not glorious. But its also a great
entry-level way to contribute. I'd really like to see an organized
push to place people interested in helping into the team with a Fedora
community wide guidance at the beginning of their 6 month tour of
duty. And then at the end of the tour, we integrate our experienced
triagers into other areas of the project.  But without someone to take
the lead, I don't have a person whom I can directly support and
bolster with by expert cheerleading abilities.
