You mean 7.4.2, right?

from the Debian POV, I’d rather be conservative and stay with 7.4.1,
which seems to be a high-quality release. Some changes to 7.4.2 are more
than bug fixes, and at this point of the cycle, I’d rather not add them
untested to a Debian stable release. If the freeze here was a few month
later, things would be fine for us with 7.4.2 :-)

How about 2012.2.0.0 with 7.4.1 and with 7.4.2 :-)
