You don't have to be a Debian maintainer to access the Debian BTS. It
works on the trust system, anyone at all can change (including closing) a
bug on any package. This used to be a disadvantage when spammers started
adding xxx-close at addresses to their database, but I think
they just added a spam filter, there's still no real restrictions as far
as I know. So if you want to close the bugs yourself, you can. But you can
also send me a list if would rather have me close them anyway.
