That depends on what you call unglamourous work. No, I don't triage bugs. I don't have commit privileges, so I can't.
Is this the sole reason? You could try to review patches which are proposed, or give advice where you are competent. As Terry (I believe) said, it's certainly as useful as changing form values and checkboxes :)
By the way, it isn't about commit privileges, but tracker rights. I don't think we would consider giving commit rights to someone who hasn't ever participated in the community, and apparently isn't a Python user.
