Andre is the expert here, but he often says that all the free software
projects he is aware of have ever-growing lists of open tasks. In our case,
we also need to take into account these new factors:
* Phabricator is not only for bugs, and many new tasks that didn't have a
place in Bugzilla are being created.
* Several teams had tasks open in Mingle or Trello, and now they are
cloning them in Phabricator. They are not new, but count as new.
* Phabricator is not only for software development projects, and this is
becoming another source of new tasks.
Said that, I think that everybody would benefit from having more discipline
* including a % of old yet relevant tasks in current sprints
* marking tasks as "Needs Volunteer" if nobody in the current teams plans
to work on them
* declining tasks that have been around for a long time and are not
relevant, or not worth the effort of anybody
