As a general thought about this kind of thing, I generally send
"ping...?" type messages/email/BZ after a few days.  eg 3 days-1 week,
don't leave it too long.

If no response by then, close it with a message like "Closing this as
we don't have the info needed to properly investigate it.  If you have
time to get the info (as mentioned above) to us, please re-open
this. :)"

Seems to work fairly effectively.  If someone know a better approach
though, I'm happy to adopt that too. :)
