No, it doesn't. git-bz apply on a master or version branch will allow
me to amend commits. It does everything but push. The above doesn't
allow me to apply the same set of patches to a development and a stable
branch for example.

Doesn't git rebase do precisely this?

Does this rewrite the commit message to include the PR or bug number?

No, as written in the wiki you write "Closes: $number" and it will handle things automatically.
Of course some addition could be done to do the rewrite.

Do we end up with separate merge requests and bug numbers, segregating
users and developers? And yes, clicking a button is a problem when

Yes. They are different concepts in this tool, which I though it was an improvement. The bug is more about the discussion of what is wanted/motivation/reasoning/design/etc., the merge request is about pure code.
Not sure I would frame it as segregating users and developers though.

"git-bz file" took care of all the clicky stuff on the command-line.

Right, that can be improved.

I don't like the fact that the bug report and the merge request are

The only mention of a command-line tool says:
"There is a CLI tool which allows a wide range of actions to be done
from the command line, although it isn't particularly user friendly."
which is a bit low on details to allow me to comment on it.

It's rather vague, I agree. But you can explore it yourself, the readme of the project is quite explanation. But I'm afraid is not up to the expectations you have as it is right now. Would be good to improve this of course.
