since you're not mentioning the specific bug it's not easy to give you
an exact explanation for what you are seing.


- in the scribs project there are different people who have different
  points of view on what kind of workflows should be supported,
  different opinions on how softare should look like and how much far
  should scribus go with integrating "non core" features.

- some tickets are very old and in the mean time:
  - people might have changed their mind
  - scribus has changed
  - the way people work with DTP apps (and generally computers) has

- finally, the bug tracker is both a tool that is used
  - by power users and occasional users to announce their issues and
  - by the community to work on proposals on ways to solve issues
  - by the team to keep track what is blocking

and there are probably many other reasons that make the
life of a ticket not always as straightforward as one might want to

you're welcome to give suggestions for improvement!
