Set keyword or whiteboard to Triaged.

That is difficult, but I don't think we should decide not to try. We
really need to be bending over backwards to help developers, because if
we're not helping developers, we're not doing anything useful. Helping
developers is the entire point of triage.

Significant divergences from the policy requested by maintainers should
still be noted somewhere public and consistent, this is just good sense;
it saves effort when a triager joins the group triaging a given
component, or a handoff takes place, or whatever. "You and I just know
about this but no-one else does" is never a good system...
