As you're the package maintainer and, from what you say, have no
solution for the bug, I see it completely legitimate to remove any
"pending" tag.

Obviously, the "pending" tag should be set by the maintainer or
co-maintainers only. By definition, only you know if you really intent
to fix a bug.

If the bug is fixed upstream and would be fixed by an upload of a new
upstream version, I'd recommend to tag it "fixed-upstream".

In short, as first approximation, I support the removal and I would
consider any other further action by anyone else not involved in the
pkg development as rude action.
