Triaging mentored and good first bugs
- One of the goals of rummaging through these bugs is to make sure the list of bugs is current.
- Another goal is to see if unassigning inactive bugs is helpful, as it may "free" the bug for a new person to work on it.
What we'll do
- Pick a query - click on it to open up a list of bugs!
- Sort the query you're looking at by last changed date.
- Look through the oldest bugs first.
- Ask assignees or mentors for more info if you need information from them.
- Make sure that bugs have useful whiteboard tags for the programming language(s) needed, for example, [lang=css][lang=js][lang=xul].
- Unassign bugs, remove good first bug or mentored tags if responses show that's what's needed.
- Ask on irc on #bugmasters if you're not sure what to do on a bug!
Clearing older bugs
- Check bugs that were triaged in the past, and have an open needinfo: 
- For these bugs, if there hasn't been any response from a needinfo, you should ask someone else, either the bug mentor or some other developer on a relevant team.
- You may want to set the bug assignee back to email@example.com, so that a new person can take the bug.
