Eclipse still broken (in dependency hell)

Hi all,

Given that the forums are not usually read by devs thought I'd pop a
post here so it doesn't get forgotten between now and release
(especially with feature freeze now in effect).

The post reads (for those who avoid the forums):

Bug 600626[1]  is for testng missing in release (main). There was
allegedly a "fix committed" on 15th July but testng still resides in
Universe rather than Main.

This unfortunately breaks the build process for libhamcrest-java as
can be seen in the build logs here[2].

Eclipse depends on libhamcrest-java and has a bug 603656[3] that this
refers to. This is also listed as 'fix comitted' and yet no fix is yet

As things stand eclipse will not be possible to install on Maverick
and there has been no change for a month in this situation....

Any ideas how to progress this from here?
