This is on purpose. There's a 7.7.1-1 in testing, which contains
experimental stuff which I don't want in extra. As I need 7.7.1 in extra
for bugfixes and possible issues by linking GNOME 2.30 and friends
against it, I decided to make a 7.7.1-0.1 build that is compatible with
the 7.7 release in extra.
The changes have been committed directly to repos/* instead of trunk, as
trunk contains the latest changes for testing.

When GNOME has moved in I would like to start experimenting with
xorg-server 1.8, the new intel driver and mesa 7.8.
