fixed is there for cases where you've already -done'ed the bug, and
want to directly modify the fixed list (say you forgot to mention that
you fixed it in the changelog, or made a mistake, or someone found it
improperly, or...)

In most normal cases, you shouldn't need to use the fixed, found,
notfixed, or notfound commands directly. [Mails to nnn@b.d.o with a
Version: psuedoheader do found (and reopen if appropriate), and mails
to nnn-done@b.d.o with a Version: pseudoheader do fixed and done.]

We have to face the fact that either all of us are going to die
together or we are going to learn to live together and if we are to
live together we have to talk.
