Well, actually the wnpp bugs are probably the dirtiest part on the BTS:
Understanding dirtiest as unattended, abandoned bugs and petitions. Most
of the people working on the wnpp bugs has this concern: If nobody cares
about a request or an intention to work, over a package, it should be
closed, read the backlog to understand this point of view. In an example
for this, I could say that I'm strongly against repeated ITPs and merged
with the first one reported since they are most of the times useful and
full of junk and should be closed.

In this sense, this could work since people *really* interested on the
ITPs and RFPs would be visible when reopening the bugs. If they don't
care about the bugs they requested or were trying to package, well, it
really should be closed, nobody will ever care. And just in case someone
really cares, they'll file a bug, having 365 days to make it real and
not overload garbage on the BTS.
