Those packages do not need to stay in testing repo. All that is 
necessary is for several people use packages from testing repo and 
report that they are working without issues to the Centos-devel mailing 
list in this thread: 
http://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-devel/2011-September/008159.html , 
and packages will be moved to Extras repo.
