f) Triaging: So far nobody has been found to lead this error. Thanks to 
Tomeu, Aleksey we were able to assign a milestone to each Sucrose bug 
yesterday. We started to set priorities as well and identified the ones 
that should be fixed first.

Triaging is an ongoing effort, so help is still more then needed!

Check out the constant bug workflow of Gary for example. He does not 
only file bugs, he follows up on questions from the developers and he 
helps triaging. A good start is to follow up on the bugs you filed, see 
if it is still valid, if the developer has requested more information 
and to follow up on bugs assigned to you.

g) Testing plans:
A new policy has been added. As we are in our critical phase to 
stabilize the 0.86 release (less than 1 week to go) [1], we request 
every bug fix to be tight to a ticket including a testing plan [2]. You 
can help to aggregate those testing plans.
