Read about bts version tracking.

Don't say that its closed in this version, if this version doesn't
actually change something which closes it.  Just send an email to the
BTS to set the bug to the correct state (close 216626 0.3.4-1 if I
understand correctly).

With version tracking, the found, clouse, and notfound commands will
put the bug in the correctly versioned state.

Contact the stable release manager, as the bug reported said.  Its
possible that this update will be approved:
