Hi Jonathan,

Fun read this... I don't know Mozilla projects well though, but to my  
knowledge a lot of development is handled by the Mozilla Inc company.  
The article complains that Mozilla didn't yet even assign 1 'triager'  
full time on reports... which is quite strange?

Blender Foundation has been hiring people to triage reports for long  
already... currently four people even are on it - part time though. :)
