So apparently it is not OK to send a message by hand to
xxx-done@bugs.debian.org with what I consider to be the most
appropriate message for closing a bug --- by stating that
the bug is fixed in a certain version of the package; but it
is OK for someone to close the same bug by including a terse
entry in the changelog, as in:
