Perhaps something could be noted there so that bug reporters might have some expectation that a comment/reply might be forthcoming within X days of filing. After that time frame, some recommended form of follow up communication could take place as a tickler/reminder of sorts.

Well, it's holiday time and quite few people are traveling, so chances of getting responses at this time of the year are quite low. The same applies for the August conference/travel time (IMHO). Since there is usually no more than one person that may take up on it, just that one person being away is enough for getting no response until he's back and ready to answer (unless it's a high impact issue which means more people will potentially look into it).

[That said, personally, I looked at the report but the obscurity and it's low impact was enough to make it a low priority for me - but that was just my personal rationalization for not looking into it if you want to know ;)]

And as I mentioned there are reminders of open bugs to the assignees twice a week (R-core for most bugs), so the chance of a bug report being unnoticed is close to zero.
