For the latest attempt at getting some useful 'metric' data from
bugzilla see: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/Metrics
(Those pages are fairly specific to trying to quantify the amount/impact
of the work that the triagers are doing.)
Additionally, bugzilla's report.cgi is worth looking at. As an
example: The number of 'Triaged' Bugs CLOSED in the last 90days with
breakdown by resolution.
