The below is simply some boilerplate to text for use when commenting on
MRs that have not seen enough recent activity.
Hi, thanks for your contribution! Unfortunately this MR is now over
a month without an update from the author, as per our policy I'm WIP'ing
this to keep our queue tidy. Please do clear the WIP status if you come
back to work on it. Cheers!
Hi! Since another month has gone by on this MR without an update from the
author, as per our policy I'm going to close this to keep our queue tidy.
Please do re-open the MR if you come back to work on it. Cheers!

......@@ -105,6 +105,15 @@ Consider marking a merge request as WIP again if you are taking a while to
address a review point. This signals that the next action is on you, and it
won't appear in a reviewer's search for non-WIP merge requests to review.
As a general rule of thumb, after a month of no activity from the submitter of
a non-WIP MR, we'll put it back into WIP with a polite note. Then after another
month with no activity we'll close the MR off entirely with another note.
In this way we are trying to ensure all of the MRs in our backlog are relevant
and up to date. We have some `boilerplate text
<https://gitlab.com/BuildStream/buildstream/blob/master/.gitlab/merge_request_templates/stale_MR_message.md>`_,
to help us when writing these notes.
