Unanswered problem reports by maintainer

The following problem reports have not yet been marked as `taken up' by a
message to debian-bugs-done@pixar.com or or `forwarded' by a
message to debian-bugs-forwarded@pixar.com.

field of the package as found in the development tree; there is an override
file that can be amended to get the right results if you have taken over a
package and do not expect to issue a new version soon.
