I agree with Jordan.
I think we can have a Verify state (per Jordan’s suggestion), and then have a script go over old tickets in Verify for a while and move them to Close.

>>> The problem is that the “Resolved” and “Closed” statuses aren’t really distinguished on the site itself—it’s unclear for a contributor which one they’re supposed to use when they get something merged, and it’s unclear for the reporter what they’re supposed to say. Therefore, I suggest changing the “Resolved” status to “Verify” (like we use in Radar) and the “Resolve Issue” button to “Mark Resolved”.
