Public bug reported:

Please backport Rosegarden 1.7.3 as it includes many bug fixes and new
features such as part transpositions that are extremely useful in
composition and arranging.

Rosegarden is the notation editor and midi sequencer for the Ubuntu
Studio package, and with ATI abandoning hardware accelleration for the 2
-year-old Radeon chipsets, and with the problems with the RT kernel in
8.10 and 9.04 on some Dell hardware, there will be a long term need to
backport the Studio apps.

If it helps, I have created a binary deb which I call 1:1.7.3-1ubuntu1
so as to be recognized as an upgrade to the strangely named 1-colon
version numbering used by the Rosegarden packager.  I am a rank novice
at deb packages, this is a total hack composed of guesses, fudges and
splices of other deb specs, so I really don't know how good it might be,
but it does work for my purposes and if it would be useful for the
backporting I would be happy to attach it or send it somewhere for
