I'm confused. Here's what I understand from the above:
Tore says that -m'Happy Sponsor <firstname.lastname@example.org>' will cause bugs to
be tagged fixed instead of closed.
Andreas says that -m'Happy Sponsor <email@example.com>' will cause bugs
to be closed instead of tagged fixed.
Would the real -m'Happy Sponsor <firstname.lastname@example.org>' please stand up?
