GitHub supports that workflow: When you mark an issue as solved from a
commit message, that commit is added as a comment to the issue. The issue
itself is closed as soon as the change is merged to master.

This even works across forks! Say, I fork your repository, fix some issues
and push them to my fork. You will see a comment on the issue that my fork
contains the fixes. When you merge the changes into the develop branch of
your repository, another comment is added to the issue. Once you merge to
master, the issue is closed.

Maybe it is time to leave trac behind?
