Re: Stale PR closing

Hi,

I don't like the idea personally, especially on OCA wide level. I often pick up abandoned PR's fix them up and resubmit them. At the very least I like to go through them when porting modules to see if anything in there is value that needs porting. If they are closed it is a hassle working out why it was closed (superseded, abandoned etc).  

Maybe for new to OCA modules, but for existing modules, a human should really determine whether it is worth reviving IMO. I think a much better application for a Bot is to find interested reviewers. Do some smart stuff like

When a PR is submitted, crawl history and cc any past reviewer or committer for that module (maybe even have a reviewer group so people can choose to opt in) (maybe in past 18 months)

Dear community,
 
In OCA repositories there are PRs that have not been updated for years, and are either abandoned by authors or by reviewers. Should we agree on policy (and implement it via OCA Bot) to close PR/issue if there was no activity for more than 6-12-18 months?
 
Kind regards,
Alexey
