Normally it would have gone to jaunty-proposed/updates, but due to some
disconnect between our Qt and KDE versions in Jaunty we have at least one
regression that upstream will not support fixing. We promise -updates will
be regression free, so 4.2.4 is not suitable for that repository.
Since we intend to put 4.3.0 in jaunty-backports shortly, no one on the
development team was excited about doing the work to get 4.2.4 into
backports since it was already in the PPA.
