So push it to 42.3 and folk can grab it from the Printing repo, as
maintainer, you can always build with what your happy with and then
just disable the build for 42.2 so you can decide if and when a package
can go through...

Even small packages mount up, many have been push back to OBS because
of minimal build power on packman... now with all the arm stuff coming
online, more load...
