[#1287] Can't set Bug status to "Pending"

Can't set Bug status to "Pending"

Detailed description
Apologies if this is a feature request and not a bug.

There's no way to set the status of a bug report to "Pending", despite what's shown in the help window for
that drop-down box. The only available states are "Open", "Closed" and "Deleted". I like
to use "Pending" to indicate that the bug(s) associated with a bug report have been fixed for the next release,
and then change the status to "Closed" when that software release is actually (uhh) released.

A further note on this from the GForge side... apparently this
can't be easily done without breaking triggers and such.  Perhaps
it will be easier in GForge 4.5...

Hm.  Yup, you're right.  That's odd.  I'll poke around the GForge
code a bit to see how hard it is to add a new status item.  I
think it's just an int in the database... and maybe there's a
case statement somewhere for open/closed/deleted.

Thanks,

Tom
