Hi everyone,

Later today there'll be a mass assignee ping for Bugzilla.

Unfortunately, everyone in the cc of the bugs will receive the ping, too.

The only bugs that'll be pinged are that
* were assigned more than 2 weeks ago
* where the assignee didn't do anything to the bug since more than two 
weeks ago
* where the assignee didn't confirm the bug was assigned correctly by 
either setting status to ASSIGNED or by putting OK on the whiteboard and.

Bugs that are assigned to QA or Bug Squad won't be pinged, nor will 
Reporter = Assignee ones.

Enhancement requests and minor bugs won't be pinged either, nor will 
bugs that have the TRACKER or UPSTREAM keyword.

If you're the assignee and you don't have a clue whether the bug was 
assigned correctly or not, please put NEEDHELP on the whiteboard.

If you know it was *not* assigned correctly, please reassign to either 
the correct person or to Bug Squad, and explain.

Set status to ASSIGNED or put OK on the whiteboard if you don't want to 
be pinged in the same bug for the same thing again.
