The Ghost of Issues Past

The end of the year is fast approaching, and this is a good time to review open issues from long ago. A great way to find older issues and pull requests is our wonderful search system. Here are a few examples:

That last group, the ones not touched in the past year, should probably just be closed. If it’s remained untouched in 2013, it probably won’t be touched in 2014. There are 563,600 open issues across GitHub that have not been touched in the past year.

So go forth and close with impunity!
