No, AFAIK the `rule' was that you shouldn't close the bug until the
package was installed. Where the package was installed wasn't the
point; the fact that the incoming queue was backed up regularly at
that time was the reason for this (it could take a significant number
of days after the upload for a package to get installed; closing the
bug before then was `not done').
