In fact, it's less about the BSA technical part than about organizing
the NLP QA team dealing with the BSA reports.

No, we do not have such page yet, may be more when Moztrap will be
localized and used by the NLP QA teams where we will have to coordinate
our work and also deal with more processes. This is one of the aim of
the BSA translation to have more NLP participating to the triaging.

It's more about organization than who is part of the team. The
information I have to write is of the kind
--> before requesting on being part of the BSA NLP process
- make sure you already know how to deal with BZ
- make sure you have enough people able to write good reports in English
- etc...
so you see, the BSA come secondary in the process and the technical side
should already be known by the team.
As an example it's closer to the Localization guide
I need to document all what you have to know and make sure about your
team before trying to participate. We don't want to bring more work to
the QA team, or to have incomplete/bad bug reports, and we don't want
the NLP to be disappointed because after doing all the translations,
they realize they don't have enough resources to participate.

There is an organization between the pages, if you look at the QA
category. The localization of the page could be organized then using
templates through the NLP QA team, just like we have
