I meant the same. If a bug report is duplicated and contains no useful
information, should be burnt out.

I go for the same as previously: If it is duplicated and contains
nothing worthwhile, it should be closed. If the new bug report is merged
and then this picky bastard (me) and unmerges and closes it, that is
logged on the first bug report, which in all case will be seen there is
more interest for that piece of software to be packaged.
