If you are *sure* they are fixed, you can probably close them yourself.
Or at least procede in 2 steps:

1/ send an email to XXX-maintonly@bugs... & the person who submitted the
bug saying:

"I've not been able to reproduce this bug with packageFoo
version 3.14159 so this BR should be closed. I'll do so in 2 weeks unless
someone brings new elements on this bug".


"This bug has been fixed in packageFoo in version 3.14159."

2/ 2 weeks later close the bugs on which you had no feedback.
