Description of problem:
People forget about the bugs they have filed that are still open, and
don't nessarily use "My Bugs" in the bugzilla interface.
Would it be possible to have bugzilla generate periodic email to
reports summarizing the information in "My Bugs."
Perhaps once a month by default? With some nice polite text to
encourage people retest their bugs against most recent updates and
report back. Having the original reporter at least report back on a
bug every month or so saying the problem still exists would have to be
better than having a bug report go completely stale for 3+ months and
not knowing if the reporter is even still interested in providing more

Red Hat's current Bugzilla version is 2.18. I am moving all older open bugs to
this version. Any bugs against the older versions will need to be verified that
they are still bugs. This will help me also to sort them better.
Just checked.. I still don't see any configuration in the accounts section that
suggests this feature is something I can enabled. Nor do I get reminder emails
about my open bugs. So consider this RFE "verified" as being relevant with the
new bugzilla version.
