Wow! That would need to be a real expert, because many bug reports
require a lot of insight into the affected component in order to
decide whether a bug report is good or NOTABUG (i.e. due to
misconfiguration, h/w instability, unofficial upgrades and replaced
packages, for instance).  Very often it's really just the developers
who know what has changed recently or whether something is supposed to
work or should be supported.
