/me understands that the issue is with versioning of the package, not in
upstream. The changelog clearly says it's "2.4.2 preview 1" and the
release number in package should reflect it, e.g. by having the NVR
mono-tools-2.4.2-0.1.pre1.fc12. It helps users of that package to easier
tell that its actually a pre-release, not a "stable release".
