I prefer 6 months than 2 months because in practice many issues have been 
open more than 2 months simply because I hadn't gotten to the relevant 
feedback yet. Sometimes it takes even longer, e.g. just earlier this 
afternoon I responded to some mail from 2007 and 2008, but I think 6 
months would be a relatively good average and would ensure we don't end up 
with issues that are so new that I haven't even looked at them yet.
