[Bug 289611] Re: Hardy KDE 4 remix to Intrepid is incomplete

Add task for ubuntu-release-notes as discussed on IRC. While we can't do
anything sensible about this, it probably makes sense to mention it in
the release notes since remaining -kde4 applications are rendered
useless in an intrepid environment (due to changed installation prefix
and different application versions).

** Summary changed:

- Hardy+KDE4 to Intrepid breaks KDE4 systemsettings
+ Hardy KDE 4 remix to Intrepid is incomplete

** Description changed:

+ In some cases an upgrade from Hardy Heron KDE 4 Remix to Intrepid Ibex
+ isn't done for all applications. This will happen if the package
+ kubuntu-desktop was removed. We strongly advise to ensure kubuntu-
+ desktop, and if KDE 4 is installed also kubuntu-kde4-desktop, is
+ installed before upgrading.
+ Orig description:

  Binary package hint: systemsettings
  When you upgrade from Hardy with KDE4 to Intrepid with KDE4, "System
  settings ..." opens a blank window.
  http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=6038056 - me and one other
  person had this.
  This happens to those who were on Hardy and installed KDE4 from the ppa.
  dist-upgrade to Intrepid works, but systemsettings is completely
  The solution in the forum thread above is: apt-get install
  systemsettings - this removes systemsettings-kde4 and the resulting
  systemsettings can in fact be used.
  The forum thread suggests: "shouldn't there be a dependency which
  installs the current systemsettings package even if the systemsettings-
  kde4 package is installed? This may cause problems for everyone who
  tried the kde4 packages in hardy."
