Ok. thanks for the explanation. my question was more around why the
issue was no longer "in progress"... but that's not so important.

 A different approach... for situations like this where quality assurance
by the reporter really can't be relied upon, is to use the "resolved"
state for those issue fixed but not yet available in any release.
 That makes it simpler for developers because they don't need to resolve
and close (or remember to directly close) the issue every time.
 Instead when a release is made part of the release process is to bulk
transit all resolved issues over to closed.
 In this manner the release process itself substitutes as the quality
assurance.

I'm not very fond of inheriting from SNAPSHOT parents. Apart from the
project instability it introduces it also slows down every build.
