I had a bug report closed as a duplicate of a similar discussion. The similar discussion was just that - it was tagged as discussion and offered no solution. The bug report cited a confirmation with a diamond moderator, re-framed the problem, and then offered a few solutions to the problem. And it created an actionable item for the site to act upon by tagging with bug.
Now that the question is closed, what will happen? Will the site still get the bug report and act upon it? Will the related discussion be promoted to a bug report since a diamond mod acknowledged it was a bug and the the community decided it was a duplicate? Or will the bug report be disregarded?
How should we proceed? Or what should be done next?
So things are clear: this is not a veiled request to reopen the bug report. I'm fine with it being closed as long as the problem is fixed. This is a question on expected outcomes based on events surrounding the bug report, and procedures to ensure the problem gets fixed.
Because it's not a veiled request, I did not even bother referencing the original bug report. This question is about outcomes and procedures.
