Yes, fixes22594 is the snapshot that Mythbuntu 9.10 decided to ship
with when Ubuntu RC time rolled around two weeks ago.  The MythTV
developers continued debugging some issues and have added more fixes
since then, hence the above announcement that they are offering RC2
source code, which I believe they hope will turn into 0.22 final.

Some time after 0.22 final goes out, the Mythbuntu plan is to issue an
formal update.  To stay within the formal Ubuntu process, that takes
some number of weeks.  I.e., it is considered an update to a released
product, so it has to be tested some and not just released blindly.
Note that this isn't to say that all other (non-myth source code) bugs
discovered since then will be fixed - that is a function of their
severity and complexity.

If you need the update more urgently, you can enable the non-official
(and not-tested-but-believed-to-be-just-fine-because-it-is-based-on-released-stuff)
releases by way of auto-builds:
