Talking with adn on IRC, I've decided to launch an script that will
close every opened ITP and RFP bug on the BTS with a lifetime greater
than 600 days by tonight (or if anything goes wrong -I have an exam
tomorrow noon-, by tomorrow night). I'll point to documentation on how
to re-open bugs, if the submitters/owners still have interest on the
package. I'll do the same a couple of days later for ITPs/RFPs greater
than 450 days and finally with those greater than 365 days. Later I'll
set a cronjob on gluck to close all of those reaching 365 days old.

All this will stall a bit the work to be done by the wnpp-tagging
team :) Just a couple of days, probably. Or you could just start tagging
from the recent ones.

If somebody has something to say about this, please speak now.

Something similar should be done with ITAs soon (retitling to O or
