[openstack-dev] [TripleO] Bug squashing followup

While bug squashing yesterday, I went through quite a lot of bugs
closing those that were already fixed or no longer relevant, closing
around 40 bugs. I eventually ran out of time, but I'm pretty sure if we
split the task up between us we could weed out a lot more.

What I'd like to do is, as a once off, randomly split up all the bugs to
a group of volunteers (hopefully a large number of people), each person
gets assigned X number of bugs and is then responsible for just deciding
if it is still a relevant bug (or finding somebody who can help decide)
and closing if necessary. Nothing needs to get fixed here we just need
to make sure people are have a uptodate list of relevant bugs.

So who wants to volunteer? We probably need about 15+ people for this to
be split into manageable chunks. If your willing to help out just add
your name to this list

If we get enough people I'll follow up by splitting out the load and
assigning to people.

The bug squashing day yesterday put a big dent in these, but wasn't
entirely focused on weeding out stale bugs, some people probably got
caught up fixing individual bugs and it wasn't helped by a temporary
failure of our CI jobs (provoked by a pbr update and we were building
pbr when we didn't need to be).
