The default behavior is to close the series bugtask: if a Launchpad bug 
has a "liberty" bugtask, then landing a corresponding "Closes-Bug" 
change will set that task to FixReleased.

However, since unfortunately in Launchpad only "drivers" can fully 
create series bugtasks, it is quite common that we have a change closing 
the bug, but no corresponding bugtask to FixRelease. For those bugs we 
add the "in-stable-XXX" tag instead.
