If the bug is fixed by an upload, close it in the changelog.
If the bug is fixed some other way, or the change has already been
uploaded, use the nnn-done address with a version pseudo-header.

Closing it in the changelog will mark it fixed in that version.

No, use the found and notfound BTS commands to mark what package
version the bug applies to if needed.
You can even keep track of bugs fixed in multiple versions. (Mainly
for release-critical bugs fixed by security/proposed updates.)

The bug by default applies from the version reported until the version
it is fixed in.
