Also slightly off-topic, but we should be more transparent about giving people triage rights on the tracker. I'm seeing some unknown people (at least they are unknown to me) who assign issues to themselves without knowing what the field is about.
Some while back we made the decision to be fairly liberal in handing out tracker privs for triage. If there are people who are not following the devguide with regards to triage, let us know here and we can discuss it and mentor them. Triage privs can only be given out by some core devs, so you can find out who and why by posting here. Well, unless it is someone from long enough ago that we've all forgotten about them :)
In the early days of the developer log, elevated issue tracker permissions were recorded in addition to CVS commit access: https://docs.python.org/devguide/developers.html
Perhaps it would make sense to start doing that again, including backfilling the list of current triagers? (even if we don't have precise dates)
