Nit: The second "emacs" should probably be capitalised.

Is M-x notation preferred?  (I don't mind.)

FWIW, the Debbugs URL format and M-x gnus-read-ephemeral-emacs-bug-group
trick are already described in admin/notes/bugtracker, which is
referenced at the start of bug-triage:

  This document just describes the procedure of triaging bugs, for
  information on how to work with the bug tracker, see the bugtracker
  file in this same directory for the basics.  You can also install the
  debbugs ELPA package for access to M-x debbugs-gnu, an emacs interface
  to debbugs, and M-x debbugs-org, an emacs interface via org-mode.

But I don't mind if bug-triage summarises the same information.
