Yes, that would do the job. You still need a way to avoid a bug getting
in the list of fixed bugs if the bug number in the Resolves line was wrong
(this includes it being a bug that was fixed long ago, as well as a bug
that the Resolves line caused to be wrongly closed and was then reopened),
or if the fix had to be reverted or turned out to be incomplete (without
the bug getting fully fixed again before the release), and a way to get a
bug in that list if someone omitted the Resolves line when committing the
fix (or only realized later that there was a bug open for the issue).
