I guess the only solution other than opening a new one would be to get an admin to reopen the PR. I’m fairly certain that it has been possible for regular users to reopen PRs in the past, so it is possible that something has changed on the GitHub side.. But as it stands, it certainly is a bit inconvenient. So my suggestion is that I reopen PR #1343 and disable automatic closing of PRs for now.
