Marking bugs as closed has nothing to do with bug triage.  Triaging
bugs would be a really helpful thing, but mass-closing bugs does
nothing but give subscribers a whole lot of emails to delete.  We
don't keep track of stats like other projects, so there's really no
point to blindly close all bugs that are resolved, instead of closing
bugs on a case by case basis.

But closing these bugs somehow makes them "resolved" for you?
