Using poppler 0.18 for the LTS (?)

Hi again,

Since for GNOME the Desktop Team decided to be conservative for the LTS 
and to stay on GNOME 3.2 by default (and update a few selected ones 
where it makes) we would suggest staying on poppler 0.18 as well.

How does that work for other teams? Does anyone has an opinion on the 

We didn't discuss it with upstream yet (we don't really have an assigned 
poppler maintainer and nobody stepped to do that), would anyone there be 
interested to do that and check with them if they have issues with 
Ubuntu staying on that version?
