Basically is it worth having a private Triage category for folks who have the triage bit on GitHub or bugs.python.org in case there’s a question about something? Or do people find places like python-dev, other categories like this one, or python.zulipchat.com good enough to not bother?
I would think the current categories are still enough. These days I find it hard to sync because too many discussions are going on in many places on a similar topic. The less forums the better especially since we have categories like core workflow where most triage discussions can reasonably belong.
Like @nanjekyejoannah, I personally find myself stretched thin between all of the different forums (here, BPO, GitHub, a handful of mailing lists, etc). I didn’t even realize we used Zulip officially until now… I just made an account, and now I feel the need to monitor that more closely as well.
If we’re doing this though, I think it would be better for it to be core-plus-triage. It would help to have a place to reach out to the larger group with stuff like merge/review requests (I did something like that on python-dev a while back with some ignored trivial newcomer PRs), or for advice, mentoring, etc. I don’t think I’m alone in not wanting to be a triager forever…
But there’s already lists for that. I guess I’m a +0.
I think core workflow category is sufficient for triage-related questions. Likely these issues are relevant to core devs and regular contributors as well.
I think that current categories are still enough as @nanjekyejoannah said.

I definitely agree with @brandtbucher
Since no one sounds enthusiastic about a new category we can continue to work with what we already have.
Thanks for the feedback (and the help you provide), everyone!
