I would like it more when first every bug gets marked NEEDINFO_REPORTER and 
ask him whether or not the problem still exists and in case it does, to 
adjust the version of the Bug report or close it with e.g. currentrelease. In 
case the reporter did not respond within two weeks, ping him via bugzilla and 
then another two weeks later, close the bug with WONTFIX or INSUFFICANT_DATA. 
This is at least a little better bug reporter experience. This is more or less 
what I did when I started to comaintain some packages, that had several bugs 
and the maintainers too little time.
