Here's the documentation of the states; they won't be changing, because
the BTS and consumers of the BTS depend on those states.

=item pending -- pending state of the bug; one of following possible
values; values listed later have precedence if multiple conditions are


=item pending -- default state

=item forwarded -- bug has been forwarded

=item pending-fixed -- bug is tagged pending

=item fixed -- bug is tagged fixed

=item absent -- bug does not apply to this distribution/architecture

=item done -- bug is resolved in this distribution/architecture

of oneself not being there."
