The Ubuntu Bug Squad is an essential asset in helping to make Ubuntu and its derivatives better.
The Bug Squad is the first point of contact for the bugs filed against Ubuntu. They assign bugs to packages, ensure that bug reports are complete, find duplicate bug reports, recreate bugs and forward bugs to their upstream authors. All of these activities improve the chance of the bug getting fixed and making Ubuntu even better.
Triaging bugs is a great way to learn about Ubuntu and how the operating system works. You may also discover new parts of the operating system you didn't know about!
