The BugSquad to is the Quality Assurance (QA) team for Sugar. We test programs, work with downstream distributions and upstream applications to ensure good good bug and patch flow, triage bug reports, and manage the trac bug database.

editors note: Currently, this page is an outline for developing an outline of the BugSquad's responsibility. Gradually, the outline will become the bugsquad wiki page hierarchy.
