Because it's not -done.
In order for a bug to be shown as resolved two things has to be true:
1) the bug has to have been marked as done, either by a message to
firstname.lastname@example.org explaining why it should be closed, or a message to
control with 'close nnnn' (deprecated, because it doesn't tell the
submitter that it was fixed, but I'm using it in this message.)
2) the bug has to be either fixed or absent in the distribution which
you're querying for all architectures the bts cares about.
Finally, if you don't know why it's not being fixed, feel free to ask
here or in #debbugs on irc.debian.org; mucking with the found/fixed
versions when the bug was actually found in that version generally
isn't a good idea.
Judge if you want.
We are all going to die.
I intend to deserve it.
