Woohoo!  I know I would like to thank Barry, Tim, and Jeremy for all 
playing some part of release manager for this.

Now, it's time for Brett's Newbie Questions!

When can we start doing 2.4 work on HEAD?  I assume 2.3 will end up a 
maintenance branch that patches are to be back-ported to.  If that is 
true, what is the tag name (I assume release23-maint)?

What happens to 2.2 work?  Since 2.3 will now be the last stable release 
should we even worry about backporting to 2.2?  I know it has been said 
that 2.2 would be a very stable version that would be around for a 
while, but I think Martin said that once 2.3 was out we would not really 
worry about 2.2 .

Are there any preset goals of 2.4?  The only one I know of off the top 
of my head is to prevent Guido from getting a pie to the face at OSCON 
2004.  =)

That is all I can think of off the top of my head.
