No they're not, we haven't started yet.  I still have to finish
reworking the triagers guide (nee the perlbug admin FAQ), and I think
Robert has some spam-related things to alter before we're ready to go.

When we do start however the bugs will be sent to both lists until we
know that the triaging is proving effective.

This is planned, but it will only make sense after we hit the point of
the mail not going to p5p until it's been through the bugmongers.
