Bug triage SIG question

As a part of the newly founded Fedora Engineering Service, which takes
requests from FESCo and acts on them, I'm trying to gauge the health
of each SIG that we have in Fedora. It's been awhile since I've been
personally involved in bug triage, sorry about that - it seems that
around the time I got elected to FESCo my free time went away.  Now
that I'm no longer on FESCo I have some time, but I've been spending
it on infrastructure and now this.

As someone who played a critical role in getting this group off the
ground for the second time, it's near and dear to my heart, and I
think that I would jump in like Superman if I ever saw it going south
:). That's not why I'm writing, I'm seeing that there's current
meeting minutes, and everything appears to be in order. What I was
wondering was whether the group would be interested in two things.

First is sending monthly status updates (in the context of this group,
that might be some of Brennan's metrics, etc) to the devel mailing
list and/or FESCo. This isn't meant as a burden to the group, but
rather as "hey, look - these guys are doing actual, important work!"
and possibly getting more contributors to the project.

The second part of that is whether someone would be interested in
doing a session (or more) of Fedora Classroom in relation to what the
BugZappers do, why they're important, and an introduction to how to
effectively triage bugs. I know that this has been done in the past,
but it's been awhile, and it's something that I think would be very
well received.

On another note, are there any resources that the Fedora Project could
provide that we're not right now that would make the job of the
BugZappers easier or more productive?

Thanks for your time!
