So I was reading the FAQ for Apple's bug reporter site and I came across this:

To request a status on an existing issue, please update your report directly via the
Apple Bug Reporter requesting a status update and we will provide you with any
available information.

I got curious about this, and I went back to to look at one of my pending bug reports and I didn't see any way of explicitly asking for a status update. I feel that I'm missing something obvious, because I expect the FAQ to be correct, but so far I haven't got the faintest. Any help?

It's as simple as posting new details on your bug with a sentence requesting a status update. There is no dedicated button to do this. From personal experience I doubt you'll get any helpful information though. Many things in Radar live there for years…

Hmm, OK, thanks for the info. – Alex Nov 24 '12 at 15:14
