In general closing bugs because they are simply too old is a clear -1 
for me.

Of course, only a closed bug is a good bug. But you need a good reason 
for closing them. The reasons are given as resolved status in BZ. I 
don't see "Closed, Too Old" there. ;-)

So, please try to check first if the issue:
- is already solved
- is no longer relevant due to license and therefore code change
- is not reproducible with its problem description
- is invalid as it's no real bug report, etc.

My 2 ct.
