If one of you'd like to bring a proposal to the QA Meeting, that
sounds good to me. Alternatively, I think it's fine to hammer
something out on the QA list.

Beluga has some interest in some of the older groups of UNCONFIRMED
bugs, so perhaps Tommy and Beluga could chat about some ideas here,
then come back to the list or to the next QA Meeting w/a proposal.

Pinging these bug reports makes sense as long as
1) it's going to save the QA team a lot of time
2) we're getting a good response from the bug reporters

I think that both UNCONFIRMED and NEW reports could benefit from this
type of follow-up ping, but the proof will be in the data.
