For open bugs there is a radio button for "resolve bug", with a dropdown
allowing FIXED, INVALID, WONTFIX etc. No separate "close" option. 

But these entries that Dennis has noted have quite a different set of
options: 
  LEAVE AS WONTFIX (or VERIFIED FIXED or whatever the status is)
  REOPEN
  CLOSE

It looks like the former are displayed for "open" bugs while the latter
options are displayed for bugs that are already marked RESOLVED.

Maybe Bugzilla uses RESOLVED to mean it has been fixed in version
control while CLOSED means that the issue no longer needs to be tracked
(eg a release with that fix has now been issued)? If so, then that makes
sense for corporates and maybe places like Mozilla but commons
components don't traditionally track things like that AFAIK.

Anyway, Dennis, how are you coming across these entries? Are you
searching with everything selected in the STATUS list except CLOSED? If
so I would just suggest excluding RESOLVED too. Certainly on the
projects I'm aware of everyone just uses the "resolve bug" option in
bugzilla [which presumably marks things as RESOLVED not CLOSED] then
never looks at that entry again.

Regards,

Simon
