Would a new 'fixed-upstream' tag be useful? Apart from the meaning
above, that's the other (ab)use I've been routinely making of 'pending';
it doesn't necessarily mean that I'm going to be uploading soon, but
it's a useful way of noting that I don't have to look at this bug any
more myself (in the non-RC case, obviously), and that I should revisit
it and probably close it at the next upstream release. For big packages
like openssh this is very useful.

I'm not particularly bothered about it appearing in a different section,
since I can always do '&exclude=fixed-upstream'.
