debbugs-gnu-search is not designed to be used with packages. It is
possible to do so, but by default it just looks for a search string, w/o
any further restriction.

debbugs-gnu, and the commands which use it internally, like
debbugs-gnu-patches, debbugs-gnu-package.

No, it doesn't. A bug can be changed in many ways, not only being closed.
debbugs-gnu-make-control-message assumes only that you change something
with the bug.

Best regards, Michael.
