The decision is the same as in the original thread:
  - Merge the state Verified, Resolved, Closed into a single Closed state.

Rationale is that no one uses those 3 states and they they are only confusing 
and making the workflow harder and search more difficult.
There is aloready the "Resolution" field which tells if the issue was fixed or 
rejected. And there is no QA team that goes to all the Resolved report to 
verify them. That's not how the Qt project work anymore.

 - Have a transition from Open to Closed.

Having to go to "Start Work" or "Wrongly Accepted" to be able to close an 
issue is just awkward.

If you disagree, please explain why.
