Certainly let's encourage contributors who have something to submit to
use PRs. But I don't know that simply moving existing tickets over to
PRs without the involvement of the original contributor will be useful.
Most of the open submission tickets have problems that need to be
addressed before they are committed.
And yes, if a submission has been reviewed and changes have been
requested, and the contributor has not responded after a reasonable
amount of time, and nobody else has volunteered to fix it, the ticket
can be closed.
