Ah, thanks, I guess I missed that subthread.

So the question left open in that mail is: When is the right time to
close them?

Hrm. So basically they're kept open because

a) people using it in Squeeze may look for them
b) people who want to resurrect aptitude-gtk should easily find them.

Would closing them with 0.6.6-1+rm and tagging them with "squeeze"

For finding them again later, some user-tags could be appropriate,
too, but only if someone tells it the potential resurrector.
