[Pulp-dev] Dealing with our redmine backlog

We've been discussing the possibility of closing issues in redmine due to
the overwhelming number of issues at NEW. Currently, we have 930 issues at
NEW and I think that exceeds our capacity to address each issue
The first item I want to bring up for discussion is expanding the ability
for users to reopen closed issues. Currently only authors can reopen issues
at CLOSED excluding CLOSED - DUPLICATE and CLOSED - COMPLETE. Should we
expand this to all redmine users?
If we expand this permission, this should give us the ability to safely
close out issues that fit some criteria. I looked at the pulpcore issues
and limited the issues to just ones without a Katello tag or a BZ and that
were created before 2020. This still leaves us with almost 300 NEW
issues in pulpcore which still seems unrealistic to go through. Any
thoughts on what criteria to use?
 It would be better to use updated at to scope issues but unfortunately
a lot of older issues have been updated recently due to spam comments
