In principle, I'm fine with closing RFPs after a while of no activity.
However, plase don't mistake bugs being open for a long while for bug
that have been inactive.  You should check the date of the latest post
rather than the time of opening.

About ITP's, they should be retitled to RFPs, rather than closed.  That
way, other people can have a go at packaging the software.

Also, there's no need to write your own scripts;  there are scripts in
some qa repsoitory somewhere (I guess tbm can tell you where, exactly)
that can do exactly what you want --- and more.

Kind regards,
