I've implemented it by prompting the user; she could change. The default
version number is the same as used by `report-emacs-bug', "24.0.50" this

I see your point, using a _release_ number. I'll change.

Btw, <http://debbugs.gnu.org/server-control.html> documents it as

close bugnumber [ fixed-version ] (deprecated) 

What does the "deprecated" means to us?

Best regards, Michael.
