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

Hi Stephan

As per my previous note, stale notifications were sent for years. Not auto-closing the bugs would not reduce the notification.

I suggest we add [stale] to the subject, so that people can filter the notifications. That's what I am doing for years :-).

I don't really think it matters whether we keep the bug open or closed as search allows to find them. However, if the JDT team members vote to change this, we can do this.

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

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


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.
