In XStream I follow the philosophy, that I set the fixed bug to "resolve" and let the reporter
verify that his case is solved. If I don't get a return, I close these issues right before
the release anyway. Similar situation for "Will Not Fix" or "Invalid", the reporter should
have a chance to give better arguments or evidence of the problem. Works quite well.
