 Currently the review queue

Do we really have reviews stalled for years? We should probably have a policy in place that reviews over a few months get closed.


Why? We have the stalled review policy that covers this subject fine, in
my opinion. And yes I have at least months old or years submissions but I
can't see why they should be closed. Same for submissions I am reviewing
and that are stuck for whatever reason.

If no one is interested in reviewing a package for years together then it is just hogging up the queue without the benefits. If a package has been submitted over say 6 months back then that submission is useless is most cases since newer software would have been released that makes the software as well as associated reviews obsolete.
