I agree on this, but

I really don't see the point in this. Submitters always have a copy of their
report, so they have evrything they need.
"New upstream closes: #1, #2, #3" implyes an update of the upstream changelog
file so it's worth of checking: listing changes already documented would be
redundant and not so helpful.
