I don't know if this isn't clear, but just to state the original point of verifying issues.

If the change is claimed to fix a bug, we compile the previously buggy code with the release in which the bug is claimed fixed and check that the bug is no longer there. It it has really disappeared, we change the status of the issue from Fixed to Verified. i.e. we are certain that the bug is no longer there.

If the change is to provide updated functionality, then it can be really quite hard to verify the new functionality, and in any case the patch review system should do that. So we simply check the patch was pushed into the claimed build. If it's clear that it was, we mark the status as Verified.

That was the original intention of verifying issues.
