  • needinfo requests are only included if the requestee has editbugs
  • adds user preference to allow requestee to opt-out
  • reminder email’s subject contains summary of flags
    • [Bugzilla] Your Outstanding Requests (14 review, 1 feedback, 1 needinfo)
  • requester is included
  • age of request in email is relative
    • “last week” / “several months ago” / …
  • includes links to opt-out
  • adds ability to defer a reminder
  • separate page, only linked from the reminder emails
  • maximum of 7 days deferral
  • adds ability to watch reminders for users
  • single email with a report of all users watched
