--- Comment #4 from Mark Linimon <linimon at FreeBSD.org> ---
Every once in a while various committers go through to try to clean up the
stale PRs.  (I have spent time doing that; see below.)  It's just necessary
work that Someone (TM) needs to do.

There are various theories of how to go about this.  One that I particularly
*dis*like is simply to close ones that are older than N months.  My feeling is
that it just frustrates submitters.  In addition, some of the open bugs are
still valid.

Of course we still need to figure out a methodology to flag PRs for
applicability and non-staleness.  OTOH I myself am not in a position to work on
that at this time.

The reason I am addressing your reply is that IMVHO it is counter-productive. 
I have received similar replies when I have attempted to triage old PRs in the
past.  It has tended to demotivate me to continue doing that, and working
through PRs is frustrating enough as it is.

You are receiving this mail because:
You are the assignee for the bug.
