You could simply create a branch to work on the upcoming release.

  ~/mgar/pkg/ganglia$ svn cp trunk/ branches/ganglia-3.1.3-rc

Then continue your work there, commit the changes and you will get
packages without the UNCOMMITTED status. The point being: packages with
the UNCOMITTED status (as your current ones) are skipped by the script
that builds the testing catalog, i.e. pkg-get / pkgutil will NOT see them
(although they are happily stored in /home/testing).


P.S.: No need to CC me, i am on the list.
