In the weekly Fedora program update that I publish on, I have started to include a count of the open package review requests. As of this moment, there are ~1300 open review requests. Some of these were opened in 2006.

The usual Bugzilla housekeeping (branching, EOL closure, etc) explicitly excludes review request bugs. Having a large number of open, ancient review requests isn't exactly harmful, but it's not very helpful either.

Before I make a proposal to FPC, I thought I'd open a conversation here. What does a reasonable cleanup of review requests look like?

My initial thought is to close all review requests that were opened >2 years ago, to be performed at the EOL closure for each release.
