Uh, was this really necessary? Qt 4.6.2 is normally backwards-compatible
with 4.5.x.

In addition, you queued updates for this for F11 and F12, but not F13. As
F13 is frozen, it will NOT automatically pick up a build, you need to push
it through Bodhi as well (and stuff pushed at this time will end up in the
F13 release, not in updates). So you're breaking the upgrade path. Please
also push this to F13 in Bodhi.

PS:
Running application X built against Qt 4.5.x with Qt 4.6.x SHOULD work.
Running application X built against Qt 4.6.x with Qt 4.5.x WILL NOT work
(and this is why pushing apps built against a new Qt to stable BEFORE that
Qt gets pushed to stable is a bad idea, but rebuilding appliations for the
new Qt is normally NOT needed).
This is known as one-way (backwards only) compatibility, and quite common.

That said, some applications do need to be rebuilt due to backwards
compatibility issues, or get more features when rebuilt against a newer Qt.
But as you did not include a Bugzilla reference nor any other form of
rationale, I can't figure out why you rebuilt this particular application.
