Bug Description

I'm using launchpad + bzr for my project.

When I push a branch with some commit marked as "--fixes lp:xxx", the status of the bug is not changed.

I know that Launchpad understand it because it links the bzr branch to the bug. It simply doesn't modify the status of the bug.

We'll mark the bug as "in progress" once there's a (not-merged, not-abandoned) branch that fixes the bug, and "fix committed" if that branch is trunk.

I started working on this, but got blocked on the difficulty of writing tests for the scanner. Blocked on bug 333696. It'd be nice to fix bug 334099 before working on this too, but not necessary.

Seems it should also leave a comment on the bug that it is changing the status for, and in that comment it should reference which revision on the branch it was fixed in (perhaps a link to the code too)

If you are doing "bzr commit --fixes=lp:bug#", it should change the bug status, and it shouldn't change the status without leaving a comment (with the revision number)

summary: - bzr --fixes lp:xxxx doesn't change the status of the bug
+ bzr commit with --fixes lp:xxxx has no impact on the status of the
+ referenced bug

Still nice to do but not a current priority. Patches gratefully considered!
