It's the committer's responsibility to review the patch and provide feedback or accept the
patch and commit it, if the patch submitter does not have commit permissions.

The patch submitter has to mark the issue as closed - as a committer I do not have the ability
to close a review request. I've reviewed the ReviewBoard docs[0] and this seems to be purposeful
- I think the intended use case is for authors who have commit access on the source tree.
