request-tracker4 4.2.3-2 has now been uploaded to Debian unstable and 
should migrate to testing after 10 days if no serious problems are found.
All the above about wheezy-backports still applies.

All of the core dependencies of RT 4.2 are now in wheezy-backports so you
can test out the 4.2.3-2 by downloading the .deb files manually and then
running apt-get -f install to resolve the missing dependencies (I don't
recommend doing this on a production system!)
