The only committer ability to close Pull Requests is via the log messages
so far as I am aware, otherwise you need to ask infra or the original
requester to close.

That said, as I have never actually merged a pull request I'm not
necessarily the best person to comment, I'm just repeating what I have read
or been told in the past. I have only ever asked infra to close a couple of
stale PRs after the changes were actually committed via raising a JIRA and
attaching a patch, and the resultant commits didn't reference the pull
requst and the original requesters didnt respond to request to close them.
