Re: Cold-case PRs

I've used https://github.com/bstriner/github-bot-close-inactive-issues in
the past to auto-close issues / PRs based on a policy around inactivity. It
worked alright.

There's also https://github.com/probot/stale which seems to be one of the
leading solutions, but it may require an Apache INFRA ticket to make the
integration work (if they'll allow it).
