I'd like to see people asking that to put a slight amount of effort
into reproducing the bug, especially if there are documented or obvious
steps towards that. I recently encountered a maintainer who just asked
if it still happens and said they would close it if there was no
response, even though there was a simple path to reproducing it. So I
did that even though I don't use the software any more and I found that
the issue (but not the exact error) was still easily reproducible and
replied documenting that it was and a more exact procedure for that.
Perhaps the maintainer didn't have time for that individual bug or for
the aggregate of bugs they were triaging though.
