Issue rating (like button or vote up button)
With more than 4000 opened issues, Redmine itself should be the first to benefit from this feature is someone can implement it (sorry, Ruby on Rails and Redmine are far from my coding experience, I tried to improve few plugins, it take too long for me).
The idea is simple, add an additional field the "likes" for each issue, every user of dev can vote for the importance of issue\feature request\bug\patch etc. This should help the maintainer to feel the community needs and will help newcomers which issue they can contribute first to have the most useful impact into the project.
One vote per user per issue. Press triangle up to vote. Press it again to unvote. Voted issues has triangles in black. Depending on votes - change the color of the number of votes from gray to black, mark top 10% of opened issues with bold, top 1% with red color of likes number. See the mock below:

I count unclosed issues with +1 counts , and listed
Nice work, but I'm afraid this list gets outdated in no time.
IMO, adding like (or vote) functionality is the best solution to keep the list up-to-date.
And we have already similar functionality in Redmine, namely "watch" objects (issues / news / ...), only meaning is different.
- Add "Like"/"UnLike" objects (helpers / controllers, ...), similar to "Watch"/"Unwatch" objects (can also be "News", "Message")
- Permission "like issue" (this way, administrators can de-activate like buttons for all/certain users)
or global setting to activate/deactivate like?
- Issue detail: number of likes (with list of users?) above or below list of watchers
- Issue query: extra (sortable) column with (number of) likes
- My page: Liked issues
- Less "+1" in history of issues
- Up-to-date list of issue-likes
