No, it hasn't - you're misreading that. It was filed that long ago, but
was marked pending last year.

That relies on a lot of stuff that's done on the server outside the
debbugs installation, actually.

One of the problems is that some of the features rolled out on
bugs.debian.org are annoyingly incomplete and I'm not sure I'd want to
inflict them on other debbugs users until they're fixed. Notably,
version tracking really ought to be fixed to play properly with expiry
before it's uploaded.
