Hi Chuck,

Over at astropy we have a bot that sends a warning to PRs that have not
received any commits for 5 months [1] and closes them if nothing happens in
the next month, asking to open an issue instead. Despite my apprehensions,
I found this worked quite well, drawing back attention to forgotten PRs
(and forcing one to consider if they best remain forgotten).

Would there be interest in such a scheme?

All the best,

Marten

p.s. We don't do anything with issues.

[1] Text of the astropy-bot warning:

Hi humans [image: wave] - this pull request hasn't had any new commits for
approximately 5 months. *I plan to close this in a month if the pull
request doesn't have any new commits by then.*

In lieu of a stalled pull request, please consider closing this and open an
issue instead if a reminder is needed to revisit in the future. Maintainers
may also choose to add keep-open label to keep this PR open but it is
discouraged unless absolutely necessary.

If this PR still needs to be reviewed, as an author, you can rebase it to
reset the clock. You may also consider sending a reminder e-mail about it
to the astropy-dev mailing list <http://groups.google.com/group/astropy-dev>
.

*If you believe I commented on this pull request incorrectly, please report
this here <https://github.com/astropy/astropy-bot/issues>.*

I haven't looked too much into the astro-py bot, but I believe there is
this github integration that does it:

https://github.com/apps/stale

We all know that less things to maintain is always better. I haven't used
it much either, but seen it in a couple of places.
