This filter is limited in scope. It considers only tasks which have been updated within the last 14 days. Naturally this causes bugs to drop out over time. I don't think this is a problem once the automation is enabled.

Note that the level of NMI issues was 2.5k at the end of September before I dropped it to ~700 (nothing older than 1 year since update). This round halfed the number again. The remainder is no older than 20wks. This is was I intend as seed for the automation.

Note that I am on watch on all those issues. People just have to comment with reasonable explanation and I reopen.
