Automatically close GitHub Issues

As you might now, I am currently working on a small Docker project to containerize ttrss.

I am using GitHub and Docker just for the sake of keeping up to date with the features of both platforms.

Although this might be an old feature, well known in the Git and/or GitHub community, I “accidentally” wrote a commit message _ fixed #2: … _

Well, GitHub automatically closed this issue during the process of creating the pull request and merging it into the master. What an awesome feature, especially when found this way!

I "discovered" this not long ago as well. Turns out there's a few words that work.


This is great. I wonder if there is more stuff which can be automated via commit messages.
