Technically, a contributor may (can) resolve an issue w/ patch, and
wait till a committer closes it, which in my opinion means the patch
is committed with or without some changes. It's how permissions work
in JIRA and it's nothing to do with the access to the repo. But, since
you can't submit your changes to the repo, there's no way for
non-committer to close issues (which I understand as submition of

There's another way to work with issues/patches. A contributor submits
a patch, then a committer commits it to the repo, and they both await
the reporter's response if it satisfies him/her.
