Describe the enhancement and the motivation for it.
Perhaps this has been discussed before or we are using reviewboard incorrectly, but the "issues" workflow does not make sense to me. If the reviewer opens and issue, only a reviewer (and preferably the originator of the issue) should be the one who can mark it as resolved, not the author. Having the author be the only person who can mark it as resolved is a bit like the fox watching the hen-house. Perhaps a 3-stage workflow is required, where an issue is marked "Open" by the reviewer, "Fixed" by the author, and finally "Closed" by the reviewer. There doesn't seem to be a way for the reviewer to indicate whether an issue has been properly addressed or not.
