You open it. Or Ahmad, he started the thread :-p

As for the requirements, I can't speak for Ahmad, but that may start
the picture.

I used to use Trac with such a Subversion post-commit hook, as documented here:

In short:
 - having "fixes #123" or "closes #123" in the commit message would
add the comment to ticket #123 + a reference to the commit, and close
 - having "refs #123" or "see #123" in the commit message would only
add the comment + a reference as well.

Now, with Bugzilla, that could be a bit more complex:
 * should we have a "fixes #123 resolved"? or is it implied?
 * we have to make sure that our revision id is understood and
correctly rewritten to the right URL
 * how to do we make Bugzilla understand that a specific commit
revision would map to a given Web URL for direct review? (interpreting
correctly whether it comes from a git or a svn scm; or others).

Checking https://wiki.mozilla.org/Bugzilla:Addons#Integration_with_Source_Code_Management_programs
and then https://wiki.mozilla.org/Bugzilla:Addons#Bugzilla_Extensions
there seems to be some tools but I could not see one that fits here
