I thought there was going to be a dinstall feature that closes bugs exactly
when the new packet is installed in the archive. Wasn't that the whole
point of the crazy regexp that was posted here a few months ago?
If I want to close bugs manually, it's no easier to run "release" than to
just e-mail close notifications to all my bugs.
(What/where is the "release" command, anyway, and how can people get away
with such blatant namespace pollution?)
