|Summary||0004221: Automatic Email Reminder of unresolved issues.|
There should be a reminder of unresolved issues older then some threshhold (perhaps user configurable) that emails the assigned user.
Try clicking on view bugs and reverse sorting by date. There are a number of issues on the bugs.mantisbt.org that are duplicates, already fixed, or apparently wont be fixed, but are still open and unresolved.

I guess the real issue here is to figure out two things:
1) how to have a "cron" (scheduled tasks) infrastructure within mantis. One can rely on external cron jobs or have an internal task manager. There are a few solutions for this:
2) have a way to list all those bugs, with the email contacts and make up a mail to actually send, recording all this in each bug's history.
3) anything else?
At any rate, the general approach should be to build a script that does the actual necessary work and let it be called as http://bugs.mantis.org/cron.php.
Some scripts that I've used, which can do fake and/or real cronning (cronning?) require for you to (un)check a box to toggle the fake cron.
using a web based cron thing instead of one installed on the system?? That idea seems freaky. Would that be slow? Does it send in an email when the job iterates? Scary thought.
NB for 2f, on that page all you might be doing is taking options for setting something in the database. Your webservices script or whatever may only have to receive data and flip a switch.
I might provide the code from my RSS posting plugin (not my work, but I have a copy) if it is GPL and I remember to do it.
