In other bugtrackers I have often see issues get automatically closed after they have been in some "needsInfo" or similar status (waiting for a reply or additional information from the original poster). That is already wrong, but at least it makes some amount of sense.
But in this bugtracker I have just witnessed the most stupid thing ever. An OPEN issue gets automatically closed "due to inactivity" after a year of... well, inactivity.
An issue that has been reported, with all the necessary information to understand and fix it, why the hell should it be closed "because" nothing has happened in a year?? That you haven't fixed it in a year isn't by any means a reason for closing it. If anything, it should be a reason to give it more attention.
It's f***ing ridiculous.
