Again... maintainer can close these if he likes.
Owner can close these if he likes.

The problem is that maintainers avoid closing.
And that there are people who submitted patches without CC anyone and gone.

So a simple logic can be applied after we add metadata into tree:

1. If no maintainer is CCed on change, close that change within short cycle 
(can be even a week).
2. Maintainer to close patches that have no interest in.
