Over at the opam package repository, we are now experimenting with closing issues that have had no activity for 3 months or more. These issues are labelled with the Stale tag, and subsequently closed after a fortnight.
This can be overridden simply by removing the tag and having some (non-bot) activity, which is the reason for this post. We are not closing issues to ignore user problems, but rather to have a sustainable working set for the project developers. If anyone wishes to volunteer and help out by looking at Stale issues and seeing if they can triage them, your efforts would be most welcome. Just navigate over to the Stale Issues label and you can see the full set for yourself.
