[Libreoffice-qa] Stagnant NEEDINFO bugs

Hi All,

During our last QA call we came up with a plan for NEEDINFO bugs that 
have been stagnant for 6+ months. I've decided to remove this from the 
minutes because there are some concerns about the agreement that was 
made. It was requested that we have a discussion through a thread about 
what we should do about these bugs.

Let's try to keep this thread moving and organized so we can make a 
decision once and for all. Goal should be to minimize flare ups from 
users while keeping in mind that our long term QA goal is to get FDO 
organized, accurate and under control.

With that, I'll let the thread move forward :-D

Options: (feel free to add)

a) Leave them alone, accept that most will just sit in NEEDINFO forever

b) Automate a reminder for these bugs and leave it at that, if it 
doesn't lead to anything, so be it, leave the bugs alone

c) a reminder + automated closing of bug after some period of time

d) a "3 strikes" type system - send one reminder, a month later send a 
second with a warning the bug will be closed, then close the bug

These are the options that come to mind.

Best Regards,

P.S. Florian - please hold off on writing something about our previous 
agreement until we reach some consensus here.
