The reason you are seing this, is that the update_excuse file
information is not enough to know why a package is not in testing, you
can find more information in the update_output.txt file or the testing
FAQ, but basically, for a package to be considered ready to enter
testing, it needs to be a valid candidate and its inclusion in testing
need not to break any other package in testing, which is why most valide
candidates are not yet in testing.
