One can only wonder why there is a timer on the Incomplete with response 
bugs at all.  The bug is clearly not waiting for any more information 
(assuming the reporter has done what was requested of them), without 
anyone else further commenting on the bug, possibly bumping it back to 

Although I guess this is an argument in favour of automatically bumping 
bugs back to new when they have been given an answer by the reporter in 
the incomplete status.  Buttons like the answers section would be great!
