Your last comment puzzles me. How is anyone other than you and me
going to see the request to send email if it is still a problem? The
bug is an old Jitterbug submission, which means that the original
submittor is not known by SF.
You need to send the original submittor an email yourself if you want
him to reply. If you did send that email, the comment in the bug
report is misleading. (It would be clearer to say: "I sent private
email to the submittor. If he reports that it is still a problem with
2.0, I will reopen it.")
(You probably did not notice that it was a Jitterbug report. But SF
doesn't always have an email address, even for new bugs.)
