Gender-neutral pronouns

Recently, a bug was filed to change Bugzilla to use gender-neutral pronouns:

As the docs are in flux, I asked that fixes to them be excluded, and I
then reviewed the remaining patch for technical accuracy. It seems fine.
But this is in some sense a policy change as well (or at least the
creation of a new policy) and so I thought it should be mentioned here
for discussion.

(It seems that the issue of gender-neutral pronouns in software and its
documentation has recently become a contentious one[0].)
