Subject Re: JIRA cleanup inactive issues?
Date Thu, 14 Feb 2013 14:00:41 GMT
Why should an issue be closed just because it's been open for N years?

It can easily be a real issue, just low priority.  Eg likely many GSoC
tagged issues fall into this category.

I don't think we should do any bulk actions here: I think people who
care about the number of open issues should actually look, issue by
issue, and make a call.

Why do we care about the number of open issues?  Who is using this metric?

it's perhaps worth it? We could turn off notifications, but then we'd not get the "ping" effect
to those not following the list closely.
