Allow me to paste from #rt:

14:00 <@trs> ram: the quick search on the web automatically limits to active 
14:00 <@trs> ram: `rt ls` doesn't if you specify a query
14:00 <@trs> try `rt ls 'requestor=someuser at example.com and (status=new or 
             status=open or status=stalled)'`
14:00 <@trs> or similar

Please wait a reasonable time for a response before asking in multiple mediums.
