[GNC-dev] What about outdated open bugs in Gnucash Bugzilla?

Is there perhaps a need to place maintenance limits on GnuCash release
versions,  i.e. at a specified time after release they become unsupported,
as is bugs and all. This is more than likely what actually happens in
practice given limited skilled developer time. As bug reports are often tied
to a specific version, bugs could then be removed from bugzilla when the
version they apply to becomes unsupported.  Most bugs are not show stoppers
and those that are or are particularly inconvenient are usually fixed fairly
quickly after release.

Enhancement requests could possibly have a longer lifetime but perhaps there
is a need for expiry on those as well. E.g. if they didn't make it into the
next major release and you really need that feature you raise the issue
again (or work on it yourself).
