Of course it is helpful for any one to help with bug triage. Beware that 
confirming new bugs is a bit trickier
for tempest than other projects because it has such a high rate of 
Invalid bug reports. This is because bugs in other projects will often cause
tempest to fail and many people just file tempest bugs with a stacktrace 
from the console. You often have to dig further to find the real issue.

For that reason we like to always have a core reviewer watching bug 
traffic and being the "bug supervisor" in the below referenced wiki.
That was the point of this message.
