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:
- issues opened over a year ago state:open created:<2013-01-01
- the ones I’m involved with involves:twp state:open created:<2013-01-01
- and those not updated in the last year involves:twp state:open updated:<2013-01-01
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!
