I agree with Paolo,

please do not close tickets automatically... yet.

Let me work on the queue during the HF, I'm sure that many features
requests tickets can be closed.

I know well the bug queue and I'm not so sure that there are many
tickets that can be closed, most of them are real issue. Eventually I
can make a report and we can discuss what to do.
