Default KTorrent 3.1.2 -> 3.1.4 in intrepid-updates

I'd like to propose something that typically goes against our SRU policy: As someone who's tracked KTorrent development and upstream's forums community for quite some time now, I think it's in our best interest to track new upstream point releases in -updates.


Their history is relatively clean of point-release regressions, and they release these maintenance releases pretty often to address new bugs being reported to their upstream forums. Doing so for us would fix a few memory leak and infinite-loop (high CPU usage) issues, particularly in the DHT and UDP tracker codepaths.


The only question I have with this is how does it affect translations, as we have no guarantee that upstream string-freezes

+1 for me for uploading KTorrent 3.1.4. It just needs to be tested a bit(for
example, to see if http://ktorrent.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2671 or
http://ktorrent.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2684 are reproducible), the kubuntu-
updates-testing PPA seems like a good place to do so.

It looks like they use the kde infrastructure for l10n, so we will get the new
strings when we upload kde 4.1.3 language pack.

That is what intrepid-proposed is for.
