And as the bug reporter, you never get the message that says that the
bug has been tagged. *That* could be subject to a bug report to b.d.o.

I don't want to repeat what has been said over and over each time such
issues has been raised, but basically, i'd expect the changelog to at
least say what kind of bug is fixed or even better what has been done so
that the bug was fixed, instead of just closing in this way. The Closes:
facility in changelogs is not a bare replacement for the bts close command
