Re: [eclipse-pmc] Stop bug auto closing!

Following up from I want to
inform the PMC that I see these options:

1) Turn of auto closing of old bugs - AT LEAST FOR JDT.

Is there a decision between JDT committers to do that? If there is such - the PMC should honor it.


2) I have to step down from my assumed responsibility for ecj maintenance.


3) I don't see an option #3

Note that this has two aspects:

- the flood of mails which takes down significant time from development

- IF we'd ignore those mails (ideally automatically!!!) we'd loose significant,
   perhaps vital information about previous efforts in analysis and recognized
   violations of JLS (in the case of ecj).


PS: FWIW, the backlog of JDT bugs waiting for auto-close is currently 4456.
There's no reason to expect this flood to end any time soon.
