Ubuntu has a team (Bug Squad[1]) that tries to triage incoming bug
reports, including forwarding them upstream when applicable.

I don't know how successful this is, but if it has success, then maybe
we could try to recruit volunteers for a similar team in Debian as well?
This should of course include mentoring them a bit as well.
