No, the point is different: I do not want to know the way a bug is
closed: i suppose that it was fixed and a changelog entry was filled.
If it is not, I always have the email address of the DD who closed the
bug, and that is enough to ask for a reason, or reopen the bug asking
for a proper changelog entry or on the bts.

But as i stated in another email, any user can get the package source an
check the changelog. I only do not suppose any one is interested in the
way a bug is closed. For examples, when i file a bug, the only thing i
would like to see is the bug closed: I'm not interested in the way it was
closed (in most cases).
