The first two have only test ("experimental") versions available; the
last has only a backwards-compatibility ("previous") version.

You can manually inspect the setup.ini file downloaded to see details
like this.  Info for each package starts on a line "@ packagename".
There may be several versions listed for each package, optionally
preceeded by a "[prev]" or "[test]" line.  The packages you mention
don't have a current version before the [prev] or [test].
