No: see changelog reversed:
qt2.2 (2:2.2.1-8) unstable; urgency=low
* Re-adding opengl support until another solution is created
-- Ivan E. Moore II <email@example.com> Mon, 23 Oct 2000 16:28:00 -0700
This is the first one I used.
qt2.2 (2:2.2.1-9) unstable; urgency=low
* More opengl cleanup
* Removing i18n patches as they are causing problems in some apps
-- Ivan E. Moore II <firstname.lastname@example.org> Wed, 01 Nov 2000 23:00:00 -0700
Here the problems went away.
qt2.2 (2:2.2.1-10) unstable; urgency=low
* New i18n patches (Closes: #75830)
-- Ivan E. Moore II <email@example.com> Wed, 08 Nov 2000 16:00:00 -0700
and came back again
... (-11 was the last before 2.2.2)
qt2.2 (2:2.2.2-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream version
* Does not contain any i18n patches
* compiled with nas sound support
* mesa specific GL code removed manually
-- Ivan E. Moore II <firstname.lastname@example.org> Tue, 14 Nov 2000 20:00:00 -0700
The problems went away once again (for me, not the Japanese of course!)...
qt2.2 (2:2.2.2-2) unstable; urgency=low
* contains new i18n patches
-- Ivan E. Moore II <email@example.com> Thu, 16 Nov 2000 02:00:00 -0700
... and came back.
