| pending
|   The problem described in the bug is being actively worked on, i.e. a
|   solution is pending.

so it shows you that the bug is solved somewhere. But this won't help
Joe Debianuser. Even if 'pending' is there for weeks.

My opinion: If you don't want to release a fixed version for a problem,
but a solution is known, you should add that fix to the BTS and tag it

| patch
|   A patch or some other easy procedure for fixing the bug is included
|   in the bug logs. If there's a patch, but it doesn't resolve the bug
|   adequately or causes some other problems, this tag should not be used.

'pending' in my opinion should only be used for a really short period.

Just my 2¢,
