One can't tell for sure, but often you can tell by checking whether the 
bug is assigned to someone. This can be a wrong indicator however as - 
mostly in the Lazarus project - some bug categories are automatically 
assigned to people also one might accidentaly "collect" a bug by setting 
it to feedback and forgetting to unassign oneself. Nevertheless it's the 
best indicator you have. To be really sure you should maybe ask on the 
mailing list whether someone is working on a specific bug.
