What I've been doing is, as I fix a bug, I write it in the changelog
file with "(Bug#1234)".  Then, when I upload it to the Incoming directory,
I write my annoucement and copy all of the bug reports "1234-done@bugs...".
This closes the reports and makes sure the person who submitted the
bug sees that it has been uploaded to Incoming.
