My suggestion would be not-released. As it is short and indicates the status 
better then no-release.

In the KDE Bugtracker we use a Fixed-In field. It's an additional entry field 
where developers can note down the version with which the bugfix will be 

E.g. You could search for resolved bugs component gnupg, fixed-in 1.4.21 to 
decide if it would be worth an 1.4.21 release. This also has the advantage 
that you don't have to touch the bugs after a release and It's a bit of 
additional information for the history. We could also resolve issues once they 
are fixed in master.

But I'm not sure how easy it is in Roundup to add new / custom fields so the 
status might be the better (quicker) option.
