Closes keyword is not longer automatically closing issues when the corresponding merge request is merged.
I have noticed that it seems to sometimes work when the merge request and branch are created from the issue, however if the branch and merge request are created from scratch and then
Closes #234 is added to the merge request, issue #234 does not get closed when the merge request is merged.
Below is an example of a merge request that had the keyword
Closes but I had to manually close the issue afterwards.
