[Development] Long-lived P1 issues

Some food for thought for module maintainers.....

Currently, there are 1175 open P1 issues in the QTBUG project.  583 of
those issues had that priority set more than one year ago, 342 of those had
their priority set more than two years ago, and 175 of those more than
three years ago.

If an issue is not important enough to get attention within a year, is it
really P1?

(Clicking the ? button next to the priority field in Jira shows the
following definition for P1: "Urgent and Important, will STOP the release
if matched with set FixVersion field. This includes regressions from the
last version that are not edge cases; Data loss; Build issues; All but the
most unlikely crashes/lockups/hanging; Serious usability issues and
embarrassing bugs & Bugs critical to a deliverable.")
