If they can perform "git log" they can view what has happened recently.
Tracking what might happen is much harder for active contributors.

I've never had a user ask me for such a list. All I here is compliments
that our software is incredibly robust.

The only time this info is required is for people that provide a Support
service based upon PostgreSQL, yet are not themselves sufficiently
involved to know what bugs have been reported and are as yet unfixed. I
expect such people are extremely interested in getting other people to
do things that will help their business.

I don't see a sustainable mechanism that can support the manpower
resources required to provide that information to those people, apart
from become an active contributor, or pay someone who is.

I think you are thinking of this from a very small view point. In my mind this goes way beyond a bug tracker (I assume there is a reason the individual posted and said "issue tracker").
