I did pull in those recent changes from MarcusCom repo, however a number
of those were failing with issues relating to some of the Python changes
in the mainline ports tree. I've fixed all the breakage now, and all our
pcbsd-meta* ports should be building properly again.

As for a package list, I'm doing an entire "bulk" build, if you use the
pcbsd-build scripts and run "make ports-update-all && make ports" it
should check-out / build our entire tree for testing.

The list of ports I had to fix in our repo:

foomatic-db (not from gnome3, breakage upstream)

As for not showing the specific commits. When I import Gnome3 /
MarcusCom repo, its coming from SVN and using their "marcusmerge"
scripts, which just blanket copies stuff into our tree, it doesn't
preserve any commit stuff. If we want to do that, I'll need to
investigate how to pull a set of SVN commits into GIT with history.
