IMHO, a pretty straightforward option is to close bugzilla entries once a 
change is approved and lands in an appropriate branch, and that's easy with 
Gerrit's its-bugzilla plugin. It is possible to specify which branches are

searching, but a proper query would be something like 
"owner:you at OR comment:'uploaded by you at'". That 
works on our Gerrit.
