Subject Re: [DISCUSS] branch-1

I think it would be fine to "auto-close" most remaining branch-1 issues
even if the branch is still formally considered alive.  I don't expect us
to create a new 1.x release unless a security vulnerability or critical
bug forces it.  Closing all non-critical issues would match with the
reality that no one is actively developing for the branch, but there would
still be the option of filing new critical bugs if someone decides that
they want a new 1.x release.
