How Does An Issue Get Into IDEABKL?

I thought IDEABKL was mostly full of stuff left over from jira years ago.
However, when I did a search on youtrack it turns out that there are over 4000 issues in it.
http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issues?q=%23IDEABKL+%23Unresolved+sort+by%3A+created+desc+

and the most recent item was added just 3 days ago.

How does something get into the backlog so quickly?
Is there any attempt to clear out the backlog? (I guess not if new items are being added)

Also, how do you go about choosing which items to fix?
Is there some process or do the developers just look for something that peaks their interest?
Flex bugs seem to get the most fixes these days. Much more than ANT issues (so I'm always grateful to see them!)
