Summary: 
Once a bug is reported, it is a major concern whether or not the bug is resolved (closed) soon. This paper examines seven metrics quantifying the amount of clues to the early close of reported bugs through a case study. The results show that one of the metrics, the similarity to already-closed bug reports, is strongly related to early-closed bugs.
