Someone in IRC was complaining that they’d found a RH bug that had been open a year without being resolved. I told them this wasn’t a big deal, and pointed to 50595, which was resolved in the 2.8 release. Looking that up made me curious what the oldest bug to be resolved during the 2.8 cycle was; looks like 1923 wins the honor, having been opened on August 15th, 1999, and closed in gtk 2.4 on May 5th of this year. See, it pays to look at old bugs :)
