Add Probot no-response configuration #18077
Description of the Change
Add configuration in preparation for installing the No Response app on the atom/atom repository.
Currently, when someone opens an issue and we need additional information, a maintainer will ask the issue author for more information and the maintainer will apply the
To make more effective use of maintainers' time, and to help us more quickly distinguish actionable issues from non-actionable issues, we can use the No Response app to automate the manual process described above.
This pull request proposes that we start out with a fairly conservative configuration: If we've been waiting for a reply from the issue author for more than 180 days, and the issue author hasn't replied, the No Response app will close the issue and post a comment explaining why it's closing the issue.
Once we verify that this is working smoothly, I'd like to decrease the time window to something smaller than 180 days, perhaps 28 days. That change would take place in a follow-up pull request.
