Question: I noticed a couple issues on b.p.o that were being closed by contributors (not core-devs, not their own issues).
Should non-core-devs be closing issues that do not belong to them?
Yes, but they should provide enough information (commit hash, issue number etc.) about their reasons to close those issues.
Also slightly off-topic, but we should be more transparent about giving people triage rights on the tracker. I'm seeing some unknown people (at least they are unknown to me) who assign issues to themselves without knowing what the field is about.
