That's not unreasonable, especially if there hasn't been a concerted
effort to ensure all bugs have sufficient information previously.
Projects such as WINE introduce a 'NEEDSINFO' bug status, and
automatically close bugs that have had that status for a certain
length of time (in their case, 1 year)
<https://wiki.winehq.org/Bugs#Bugzilla_Policies>. We could imagine
adopting a similar process.
