In the weekly Fedora program update that I publish on communityblog.fedoraproject.org
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?
Similar to other procedures for non-responsive people I guess: after a
timeout, set a flag and post a comment there, and if nobody steps up
to take it, close it.
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.
