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.

[eclipse-pmc] Stop bug auto closing! Sent
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. _______________________________________________ eclipse-pmc mailing list eclipse-pmc@xxxxxxxxxxx To unsubscribe from this list, visit https://www.eclipse.org/mailman/listinfo/eclipse-pmc
