If the bug is closed in NMU, it will be tagged "fixed"; let's filter those
out. Perhaps we can also filter out bugs that have recently been tagged
"pending", and list (perhaps separately) those that were marked "pending"
more than 2 weeks ago. The idea of the list, as I understand it, is to
spot bugs that the maintainer's radar and the usual NMU contributors have
missed, so that we can pitch in where it's most likely to be welcome (and
not a duplication of effort).
