This type of information is unfortunately not readily available, you can
find it in some ftp-master logfiles (/org/ftp.debian.org on merkel)
certainly, but that's not reasy.

The plan is to use the newly created debian-testing-changes mailinglist
for notifications of this kind, but it simply hasn't happened yet.

Finding out why a package is not (re-)entering testing though, is easy:

Right, but open for 47 days already. If for this amount of days an RC
bug is open and nobody seems to have cared enough to fix it or even
provide a patch, I think it's justified hinting it out of sarge.

If it's fixed, wwwoffle might re-enter testing (if the fixed version
is ready in time), if not, well, it'll stay out.
