= Gerrit Code Review - Change Cleanup
Gerrit administrators may configure
link:config-gerrit.html#changeCleanup[change cleanups] that are
executed periodically.
== Auto-Abandon
This cleanup job automatically abandons open changes that have been
inactive for a defined time.
Abandoning old inactive changes has the following advantages:
* it signals change authors that changes are considered outdated
* it keeps dashboards clean
* it reduces the load on the server (for open changes the mergeability
flag is recomputed whenever a change is merged)
If a change is still wanted it can be restored by clicking on the
`Restore` button.
