Welcome Mike! I'm afraid there's no official gun, no. :)

As of yet we don't have a really good getting-started procedure, but
here's the concise version:

1: get your fedorabugs membership (I'll approve it if it's not done yet)
- you need this to have privileges in bugzilla

2: grab the Greasemonkey scripts -
https://fedorahosted.org/triage/browser/scripts/bugzilla_buttons_for_fed.user.js and http://mcepl.fedorapeople.org/scripts/greasemonkey/add_bugzappers_signature.user.js , and install them . The first one should give you a bunch of buttons around the Comment box on each report (including No Response, Close UPSTREAM, NEEDINFO Reminder and several more). The second should append a standard Bugzappers group signature to each comment you file in Bugzilla. You can test this in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=485962 . If either script doesn't seem to work, yell. :) You need the GreaseMonkey extension for Firefox installed and you need to restart Firefox after installing the scripts.

3: go to https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/Components and pick a
component, ideally one you're pretty familiar with and won't hate
triaging reports on. Click on its name and you'll get a list of the NEW
bugs for that component. Pick a bug and start triaging.

For now, the page we have to explain exactly how to triage is:


it's not great, we're trying to improve this whole area. Please do drop
by IRC and we'll help you out with getting started. Triaging is a task
with lots and lots of little wrinkles that you pick up as you go along,
so it's best to get some help from people with experience already. And
don't worry too much, anything you get wrong can be fixed. Always ask
here or in IRC if you're unsure about anything. Hope this is helpful!
