let us all enjoy "pending release"
Message ID:
At the request of a few committers, in our recent RT upgrade, we got a new
status: pending release.

This status means, "we fixed the bug, but only in dev, and not yet in
production."  I expect we want to use it quite a lot.

For anything fixed in blead that won't be available until 5.22.0 (or whatever
the next stable is), we'll use "pending release."  Then, when 5.22.0 is
released, those tickets can be bulk-updated in RT with a notice that the fix is
now in blead.  Alternately, it can be marked resolved when released in a maint
version or dual-life CPAN upload.

I worry about the care required to get the ticket resolved early when a fix is
available pre-next-stable-zero-release, though.  Still, notice somewhat too
late is probably greatly superior to notice much too early.
