I think that's pretty sane.  Would you be willing to take the existing
policy and morph it more into the above?  In particular though I'd
really like to see the policy get written up with input from those who
are just drowning in bugzilla mail.

One thing I think would really help is if SIG meetings took a little
slice of time to quickly triage any bugs for packages related to the SIG
that have some marking of easy fix.  Low hanging fruit isn't the really
important work, but it goes a long way toward fit and polish.  A few
minutes to triage and say yes/no/idon'tcare to these bugs would really
help.  Maybe even a BugZapper person can join the meeting and be the
person listing the bugs and following up in the bug for the SIG people.

I don't want to make that mandatory at all, just highly suggested.
