Thanks.

Yes, that is ideal.  If you do that, you'll probably want to keep an eye
on address@hidden (it's a fairly high-traffic list, tho), for known
breakage and things like that.

No.  We do have pretests, tho (the one for 23.2 will start
real-soon-now), so you could help a lot by trying out the pretests and
hammering on them to try and fix more bugs before the release.
