Bugs are marked as -done when someone has taken action that fixes the
problem somewhere. The "-done"-ness of a bug is orthogonal to whether
a bug is fixed, absent, or present at a particular version. [It's
included primarily because it's needed for bugs which don't have any
versioning information and because it provides information as to
whether some fix has been found and uploaded for the issue.]

Assuming you've done your job properly, and documented in a changelog
when you've fixed a particular bug, and marked the appropriate
versions as found, everything should be handled correctly.

If you want to know about outstanding issues for a particular
distribution, append the appropriate dist= option for that

If you have particular questions about how the BTS works, or you're
unsure as to the proper way to do something, feel free to ask on
debian-debbugs at lists.debian.org or on #debbugs or #debian-bugs on IRC,
or you can track me down if necessary. [But the former three options
almost invariably result in me responding anyway.]
