May I be added to the editbugs group in Bugzilla? [0]  I'm trying to
close BZ #6889, but it doesn't look like there is very much I can do.

Please check.  I think I have updated your account.

That did the trick, thanks!

OOC, is there anything in particular I should be saying in a closing
comment?  It feels weird to just write, "Fixed."  I get not wanting
empty comments, but I guess there's no (visibly) tracking changes of
state otherwise?

Often we say "Fixed in X.Y" as a simple way of making it doubly
clear when it was fixed and to remind oneself to set the milestone :-)

Sure, but I think the real reason is that Bugzilla requires something in
that field.  Maybe we should just ask for a configuration change to drop
that requirement?

Is there otherwise a visible history of the status changes, though?
Nice behaviour IMO would be if it auto-generated a "Marked as RESOLVED
FIXED by Some Dev." comment if the status changed but the comment was
empty, but if you couldn't follow status changes because no comment was
generated, that'd be worse than the current situation, which after I
thought about it for a bit is why I asked what I should say instead of
why I have to write something.  :)

Like other Bugzillas, there is a History page for each bug, linked from the top right corner. It shows a complete history, except for the aspects which have not changed since the filing of the bug (which can be confusing). But this does not apply here.
