The informal policy[1] about who can close bugs seems to be this:
* any regular Debian Developer can do it.
* the package maintainer (he isn't necessarily a Debian Developer
* the submitter of the bug.
* Anybody else who has verified that the bug is fixed should only
  tag it as fixed but should _not_ close it.

So you can close *your* *own* *bugs* yourself even if you aren't a DD,
just send your explanation to 0815-done@bugs.debian.org and #0815 will
be closed.
