Hi Reynold,

The problem here is that the commits closing those pull requests were
fetched by our mirroring process, which doesn't have permission to close
issues, instead of pushed by a user in the apache GitHub organization.

Usually the repository receives regular, I assume automated, pushes to its
master branch, but there was a gap in those pushes between 2pm PDT on June
5th and 1:16 PM PDT June 7th. This happened at least once before back in
November. Now that those pushes have resumed pull requests are closing
normally once again.

Let us know if you have any other questions.

We use a custom merge script to merge pull requests rather than GitHub's
merge button in order to preserve a linear commit history. Part of the
merge script relies on the "closes #xxxx" feature to close the
corresponding pull requests.

two recent examples:
