What exactly would it be good for users to know?

How to do simple things with the bug tracker, like closing the bug (there are more actions one is normally accustomed to being able to do, though).

When and how can we tell them?

A decent Web UI could do that. But since Debbugs does not have it, we could write the instructions "how to do that over email" somewhere in the bug report page, among all the other text most users just skip over.

Who are the people that ought to close bug reports
and wouldn't know how?

Regular users who filed said reports in the first place.
