Some people suggested 6 months. You suggests one week. I do not persist
on 30 days but I think that it is a good compromise.

For example, imagine someone who reports a bug before leaving on
vacation, business trip, or into hospital. In addition, I think that it
would be rude to push users to provide feedback within 7 days when the
triage and fixing the bugs might take weeks and months :-)
