My first thought is that gardening these - or at least prodding the
owners of the patches - should be a maintenance responsibility.

That said, an automated weekly or monthly nag might be a place to
start, something that sends an email to the branch's owner (or bug
assignee if they haven't linked a branch) and kicks them about it.

In the case of bugs where no-one's assigned themselves or linked a
branch the script could email the dev list. And then we could hunt
down the person who marked the bug fix committed and hit them with
sticks for not doing any of the other useful things.
