Subject Re: Auto-cleaning up Stale PRs
Date Wed, 12 Sep 2018 18:16:01 GMT
A stale PR is defined by a policy -- for example, 60 days without any
movement on the PR.

Stale PRs would be bad experiences in general for community members, but
after no movement for 60 days, this is just about cleaning up PRs that are
not getting feedback from the committers or PR submitters.
