For projects that I’m involved with that have received github pull requests, when it’s
committed into Apache’s repo, we then comment on the pull request something to the effect

“We’ve committed this into the Apache repo.  Can you verify that the functionality works
for you and, if so, close this pull request."

95% of the time, the user that submitted the request will then close it themselves.
