I know it is a provocative question: But why should one still create Github issues if there are thousands of open issues (dating back > 8 years)? I am aware of the general purpose of the issues. But let’s be honest. Does anyone think that people will still look at the open github issue #1739 (just some random number) from some time in 2016? It seems if issues get older than ~3 months nobody looks at them again (besides if others find them via a Google search and keep pushing them on the forum or if the issue is really bugging many).
What can be done to reduce the number of (unnecessary) open issues? It seems there are too few in the core team and active developers to address this.
(This is meant as a a constructive question - not just a complaint. Maybe this is normal in an open source project. I am a newbie open to learn).
