If you use the 'release --to master' command, you will be asked
whether you want to close the bugs mentioned in the latest changelog
after the new version has been uploaded.  In the meantime, for every
bug you've fixed, just send an email to nnnn-done@bugs.debian.org with
a subject like "Fixed in version XXX-YYY", and they will be cleared
from the bug tracking system.
