** To close bug #123 (for example), send mail

with a brief explanation in the body as to why the bug was closed.
** Setting bug parameters.
There are two ways to set the parameters of bugs in the database
(tags, severity level, etc). When you report a new bug, you can
provide a "pseudo-header" at the start of the report, eg:
** To reopen a closed bug #123:
To: control@emacsbugs.donarmstrong.com
reopen 123
thanks
** quit|stop|thank|thanks|thankyou|thank you
On a line by itself, this tells the control server to ignore the rest of
the message.
** Bugs can be tagged in various ways (eg wontfix, patch, etc).
For a list of available tags, see:
http://emacsbugs.donarmstrong.com/Developer#tags
** To tag bug #123 (for example), send a mail of the form:
To: control@emacsbugs.donarmstrong.com
Package: emacs
Version: 23.0.60
Severity: minor
tags 123 wontfix
thanks
Otherwise, send mail to the control server, control@emacsbugs.donarmstrong.com.
At the start of the message body, supply the desired commands, one per
line:
Or just add the
command bug-number [arguments]
...
quit|stop|thank|thanks|thankyou|thank you
tags 123 wontfix
thanks
The control server ignores anything after the last line above. So you
can place control commands at the beginning of a reply to a bug
report, and Cc: the control server (note the commands have no effect
if you just send them to the bug-report number).
at the beginning of a reply. The tag can be prefixed with +, - or =,
meaning to add (the default), remove, or reset the tags.
Some useful control commands:
