It can be either. And it can also be the case that they haven't started
When you make a request for sponsor, it is effectively reserving that
bug for you to work on.
You may need the help of the sponsor to understand what is going on, you
may end up
teaching the sponsor something, etc. Your fix might undergo several
revisions - there
are harder bugs out there than the simple typos.
But it is very much like what happens when I take a bug internally. I
may not have a clue
about what is going on, but by putting my name on it, I am telling other
people that they
should not duplicate my efforts.
