I have received a similar mail (for #417879), and the archive of the
debian-doc mailing list shows that Luk closed about two dozen other bugs
in that impressively informative way recently.
It seems the rationale is this: the bugs were for the etch release
notes, so they become (more or less) automatically irrelevant for lenny.
That's why Martin Zobel-Helas tagged them "pending" in August 2007 and
Luk closed them now.
Luk, is that explanation correct?
Sven who will likely not bother filing bugs against the
release-notes pseudopackage anymore.
