> I think it is a good idea to remind people every half a year or so, that there is still a bug issue open. If they are on the exempt list they will be completely ignored by the bot, which would not have the desired effect. Remember: the closure only happens after 7 more days of inactivity.

I agree, having the bot ping about the issue is always useful. But those are different functionalities, (a) a bot the pings people on inactive stuff, (b) a bot the closes inactive issues/PR's. I had a quick search online and didn't find something that would split both functionalities. 

> And if after that time the bug still isn't at least acknowledged, it is probably not worth being kept open ;-)

Well that depends, the involved maintainers might not be active anymore or on vacation, and it could get closed because no one is actually getting pinged (i'm just referring to the 7 day closure window here, 1/2 year to become stale is more than enough).  Buy anyway as a general rule, you are right, an I'm only pointing out border cases to be aware off.
