I'm not sure if it was ever answered. I opted for a different approach
(outside EPrints) eventually as I found out that the issues support
was way too slow on our system (3.2.9).

I hoped for a quick indication of the number of open issues on one of the pages after a repository staff member log in to the repository. Is this perhaps already added in 3.3.x? Or is there anyone who built such functionality?
