Automatic closing of resolved issues
Are there any plans to implement this feature?
Would be great to turn on automatic closing of issues, if they have been marked as resolved for X days.
I know, that there is a plugin there, but it's not been updated for quite a while now and doesn't install on some instances of RedMine.
What do you think guys?

Exactly. In our workflow every resolved issue needs to be closed by project leader or issue author. However, people are no robots and sometimes miss/forget to review a resolved issue which then simply goes down the issue queue. Would be highly useful if such issues could be auto-closed after "expiration".
So I think it's pretty simple and straight forward: if an issue's status was "A" for X days, then it's status is changed to "B". That's it.
Is it possible to just update the old plugin https://github.com/edtsech/redmine_x_closed/tree so that it installs on the newest versions of Redmine?
Here's another request for this, posted a year ago: http://www.redmine.org/boards/3/topics/20046 ...

For me it would also be useful to have such a feature. For me, the inspiration is the (old / classic-style) SourceForge.net tracker. There, a status "Pending" exists for issues. If an issue is put into status "Pending", then if no change is made to it within 14 days, it is automatically closed. On the other hand, if a change is made, it is automatically put back to status "Open".
Having such a feature would be highly useful to us. And perhaps also to redmine.org: There are many ancients reports here, and for many, redmine staff now is adding comments like "Please respond until DATE, otherwise we will close this issue". But staff has to remember those issues, and on/after DATE, go back to them, and change their status manually to closed. With a "pending" status that could be automated.
Of course in Redmine, one may want to have a somewhat more general "status transition" facility. I.e. it would be nice if each issue status would get these extra fields (in addition to the existing "Name", "Issue closed" and "Default value"): * "If issue is in this status for more than [ checkbox / textfield ] days, change status to [ popup ]." * "If issue is updated while in this status, change status to [ popup ]."
(Of course the last option would only have an effect if the user making the issue update did not select some other target status manually).
