I think this is completely reasonable. I'd do the same thing and would thus close the bug.

The message sais the tickets will be closed automatically after 30 days.
That is 30 days for the maintainer to take a last look and see whether the
issue is fixed or not.


No, it is not as drastic as you describe.

Yes, EOL bugs will automatically be closed after 30 days. They should have been closed a long time ago anyway :) For other bugs that remain in NEEDINFO for thirty days, they will be automatically closed too--the normal process for bugs in NEEDINFO. If you think this is the wrong approach please lobby FESCo to change the process they have approved.

At any time before these 30 days are up you can change the bugs to version 'rawhide' and change the state to ASSIGNED, thereby avoiding auto-closure and giving you many months to review bugs as far back as you like.

And if you wanted to be a little more creative you could query all of the bugs assigned to you and change them all at once through the bugzilla GUI. Contact us on #fedora-qa we'd be glad to walk you through the process :)
