Meanwhile... maybe you can do some loud blog posts calling for triagers? :)

Sounds good. Before then, we need to clean up the wiki page for this: https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Bug_triaging

It's thorough and mostly up to date, but huge and intimidating. I've been working to improve it, but assistance would be appreciated

Problem #2: the fact that you need to ask permission before gaining write access to other people's hugs is a gigantic blockade to getting more community bug triaging. A LibreOffice bug triager came by recently and explained that they got an enormous amount more community bug triaging by moving away from this policy and only locking down a few things (like the priority and assignee, I think) and leaving the rest open. He said that in particular it was a big boost to the number of bugs (correctly) marked as duplicates and closed as fixed.
