So, again: Lubomir fixed the bug. The bug is fixed. That gets him a lot
of leeway in my world. One person fixing the bug is a lot more use than
500 people reporting it and going 'what is the status of this bug?!'

I don't see why this is a huge deal. There's a bug in Bugzilla that it
doesn't merge CC lists when you dupe bugs, yeah. Aside from that? What's
the huge problem with duping an older bug to a newer one?
