That description needs to be clarified...when a bug is tagged pending, it is
listed on the BTS web pages as "pending upload", which implies that the bug
has been fixed, but the fix is not yet uploaded.  This is useful information
to have, and seems to be the general consensus on how this tag is used.

If a configuration file is listed as a conffile, it must not be modified by
the maintainer scripts.  These two ways of managing configuration files are
mutually exclusive.  See policy 11.7.3.
