  • I am helping creating this group because I think it fits perfectly in our QA & Testing goals and also in the idea of MediaWiki thematic groups.--Qgil (talk) 18:37, 18 December 2012 (UTC)[reply]
  • All bugsquads in other free and open source projects I've been involved with were fun, because of the great people you work together with, the bugs that are sometimes a bit shy to show up when you try to reproduce them, and because it's an easy entry point to start contributing and giving something back to a project that you like. --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 19:16, 11 January 2013 (UTC)[reply]
