Right, I read the wiki and it wasn't clear to me. Here's what the wiki 

"Since Nova is such an active project with a high number of incoming bug 
reports, we have a separate process for categorizing bugs and 
distributing the load of triage to a larger group of people."


"To help make sure that the triage queue stays under control, the 
following table lists the people that have committed to regularly 
triaging bugs for a given tag."

The term "skimming" implies something done quickly at a surface level 
(like skimming off the fat or skimming a book). So I'm just asking, as 
part of "skimming" duty, are we also confirming the bugs, (confirming 
looks like it falls under the "Triaging" step), or is "skimming" just 
about tagging and getting the bugs into the triaging queues?
