There is an open needinfo for me in bug 1792458 but now that it's closed I cannot clear it. I suspect this would affect anyone that doesn't have editbugs permissions.

This is all I see on bug 1792458, and I cannot clear the needinfo.

You are correct in that you need editbugs or be the reporter, assignee, or qa contact on the bug. I have cleared the needinfo for you.

I think that this behaviour should be considered a bug with the way needinfo is handled on BMO. So I was hoping this could be used to track solving the problem at that level. It doesn't make sense that you wouldn't have permission to clear a needinfo for yourself.

Agreed, we should fix that (or at least have a bug on file tracking that known-issue). --> reopening.

Unrelatedly: we should probably also grant you the editbugs permission. :) I've done that. Though also, happy to revert if you'd like to do further testing for e.g. this bug.

I will update the code to allow commenting if the commenter is also a needinfo requestee.
