It was because I committed the patch (r1811752) and included "This
closes #6" in the log message.

As others have noted, the 'integration' with Github is primitive. I
raised ASF-infra ticket
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-15015 "Pull-request replies
sent to dev@ not getting through to GitHub" where Daniel Gruno wrote:
"The feature is currently not in a working condition (it relied on an
old FreeBSD setup). I have removed the misleading hint from future
GitHub emails. We may revisit and re-enable in the future, but at
present, it is not a service feature we offer any longer."
And now I see that not even PR follow-up messages from the GH side are

I would love it if we could set up an integration that worked. I've been
thinking to locate the other ASF people who are interested and join them.
Another thought: Maybe GitLab or Assembla would be easier to start with
than GitHub. Here's an svn mirror on GitLab, that I set up:
GitLab allows PRs to be turned off in its standard configuration
settings, so I've done that. I haven't looked at all into integrating
with ASF mailing lists.
