>From your description it isn't obvious to me, whether you want to see
just open bugs, or not. But you can play with the QUERY argument of
debbugs-gnu-search, like

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(debbugs-gnu-search (read-string "Search String: ") '((pending . "open")) nil 
'("guix" "guix-patches"))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
