I haven’t noticed a way in Trac to denote that the issue is fixed and waiting to be merged. This means that I frequently look up tickets that I have forgotten I have fixed. It also means that I have a sub-optimal process for merging to master.

I set the milestone for the tickets that I'm working to empty when I
accept them.
I use to set the milestone of the ticket to the next release when I have
added a fix on develop branch with the reference to the commit.
With these two informations you can use a filter not-closed and
When I merge it I just close it as fixed.

I'm not against adding any state that helps to make this easier. I would
like a flow that states clearly if the ticket is on a state that needs
an action from the maintainer or the ticket creator. In this way it
would be simpler to filter the tickets that we could work on.

E.g. if I found that the ticket is not clear enough, I could change the
ticket to the state request_for_information. The user should of course
move to open when the information is provided.

When I provide a patch that I can not test, I could move it to a state
request_for_test. The user should of course move to tested when the
pacth works for the user.
