    i think the current regression tracking methods that Rafael uses work
    very well and i'd like to thank Rafael for those efforts - to me as a
    subsystem maintainer it is a _very_ useful thing.

    In this case there was no real harm from the "this bug is already fixed"
    condition - just an extra email. Real harm would only come from missed
    regressions or from incorrectly closed regressions - but those are not
    happening.

    note that there is no "robot" involved in changing the state of bugs -
    the real important work here is done by Rafael and checking whether a
    bug is still relevant is an inevitably manual work. The mails and
    reports are auto-generated but crawling discussions and determining the
    status of a regression is very hard to automate.
