Cleaning is so needed there...

Let me put some background: initially we used a wiki page to collect 
requests, a process that was far from optimal but still gathered quite a 
bunch of them.

Later we migrated to a proper ticketing system and everything we had in 
the wiki was imported in bulk (they have "ianweller" as the reporter), 
so they may have at this point lost the link with the original reporter. 
For many of them we don't really know the current status.

There are also some tickets where someone from the Design team started 
some work on them and then the ticket went on hiatus.

What I think we need first is to figure which of those tickets are still 
valid (requester still existing, project still existing, problem not 
already solved by  other means). With this done, the queue will become 
again manageable.
