The great bugmaster has other qualities.
|is a compulsive organizer|
|has a very big-picture view- instinctively knows you we have too many bugs and where new bugs fall in the great scheme of things. (Conversely, should not be too obsessed with details- as someone who will read and consider thousands of bugs, they can't often allow themselves to get bogged down in one bug.)|
|is good at automating the gruntwork, to make it less draining for himself and others.|
|strong leadership qualities- motivator, listener, etc.|
|participates in bug review meetings- but is almost never disagreed with, because he has sought out the advice of PM, engineering, and other factors, and intuitively gotten triage right.|
