No, they expect users to.  If the user doesn't have the time or inclination to 
do the triage, I'm not sure what they prefer the user do.  (The pessimist in 
me says don't file a bug if you don't have the time to triage it, the bug 
owner will probably need to ask more than that of you to get the bug fixed

Yes, I greatly prefer the Debian policy of (roughly) "file all bugs on the 
Debian BTS, preferably by using reportbug; the maintainer will forward the bug 
upstream if need be."
