Maybe we should consider closing those bugs after a while?

But, if the bug exists, you cannot close the bug.

Other thing is remove the old packages from debian. Probably some packages should be removed because are too old, without upstream, and no people using them. http://popcon.debian.org is a good tool to get info about installed packages.

While I'm
sure help for grub2 would be welcome, are people actually going to see
that bug which is about 7.6 years old?  What are the criteria for
closing the bugs?
