longdesc is currently a "raised" not  an "open", not  a "pending
review" not a "postponed" issue.
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/30

The definition of a raised [1] issue does not require an action.

RAISED = A working group member suggests this is worth a WG discussion
and potentially a decision, but to date no concrete proposal has been
created that enjoys a consensus of at least one.

The definition of closed [1] is:

CLOSED = The chairs believe either the WG has resolved the issue (via
spec editing) or the issue has been withdrawn. Only the chairs should
move issues to 'closed'. Typically moving issues from PENDINGREVIEW to
CLOSED will involve review in the weekly telecon.

Has the WG has resolved the issue (via spec editing) or  has the issue
has been withdrawn?

We reviewed and edited the Tracker definitions a year ago:

Thank you. Much appreciated.
