Andrew, I think your strategy is good, but can we turn that clock back to two
years? Emacs doesn't move all that rapidly. If you can't reproduce something
From 2013 or earlier, close it as cannot reproduce with a CC to the original
reporter. Otherwise, ping the submitter with a CC to the bug address saying it
can't be reproduced, but leave it open.
