The current proposal in the PBF mailing list is to move to 2.3 as "Python in
a tie" as soon as 2.3's stability/solidity is widely confirmed.  I have heard 
no voices against that idea so far, and just a few in favour (in July and/or 
August most European business slows down due to vacations, and most PBF
members are in Europe).  How that would play (in terms of time and dates) with 
the timing of a 2.2.4 release, I don't know.
