in bugs.centos.org there are 2 differnet fields, there is 'status' and
there is 'resolution'. So setting status to closed, regardless of what
the resolution is, will just block it off.

So, I'm tempted to say we should just setup a new status for 'stale' but
use a better word ? and leave the resolution fields as they are.

in the example above it would be status: closed, resolution: nofeedback.

To me, it almost indicates the bug report has no merit anymore ( that
might not be true ).
