Closing an issue

When closing an issue (whether a bug report, a task, or a support request) a number of steps need to be taken. The tracker status should be edited and changed to “closed”. In addition, a message should be included that identifies the commits in which the issue was solved. If multiple commits were required, then include all the revisions and as many links as possible (if a task required many commits, the relax-commits links could be skipped).
