Baring any objections, I'm going to change the blurb that explains the
pending tag now to the following:
Indicates that the maintainer has fixed the bug (or believes they
have fixed the bug) in their development tree and the next upload
will include the fix for the bug.
to remove the indication that pending means that a fix will
necessarily be uploaded "soon".
More than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads.
One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness.
The other, to total extinction.
Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.
