I did the mass move.

Bugs in this set will be marked NoReply in a month unless one of the  
following happens:
(1) The bug is moved to CLOSED (and optionally tagged with the  
Disagree keyword).
(2) The bug is tagged with TrackerRequest or TrackerIssue keywords.
(3) The bug is reopened.

If you are the originator of any of these bugs, or otherwise have an  
interest in it please consider taking one of those three actions. Note  
that you should do only *one* of these three things in order to reply  
to the bug. In particular, it's not necessary to reopen a bug that is  
tagged TrackerIssue or TrackerRequest.

Here is the list of bugs that will be marked NoReply if no action is  
taken (this excludes bugs already tagged with one of the relevant  

There are currently 570.
