Bug#685456: Freeze exception for kde-gtk-config

Thank you for a reply.

Yes, binary package kde-config-gtk-style in Squeeze was built from source
package kcm-gtk. But it was replaced by new program with more features.
(For example, it supports Gtk 3.x.)

And package src:kde-gtk-config is not new. It was uploaded to unstable before
freeze. But new bug report prevented its automatic migration to testing.

I subscribe my sponsor to this thread. Hope he can describe situation better.

Yes, I have seen this reply. Quotation:

But I can't upload package into unstable until this is not allowed by release
team. Don't you think this is a closed circle?

Best regards,
