So you have a bunch of bugs that are Confirmed (or Triaged) + an
assignee set. I would argue that you need to separate two cases:

the bug had no activity for the last 60 days: assignee should be removed

the bug had activity in the last 60 days: status should be "in progress"

otherwise you further hide the fact that the bug is abandoned by setting
status in addition to the assignee.
