Neither. Feel free to send in a draft proposal for either one :-)

Seriously: Trunk will be turned into the 2.4.x branch as soon as the currently 
active developers are convinced there are good reasons to do so. "Currently 
active" developers is a blurry definition of who needs to agree to such a 
decision, but I'd suggest counting 2-3 developers is already sufficient. 

Discussing a desired feature set that isn't in 2.2 but in trunk would be a 
good way to give such a good reason. Once several developers are convinced we 
should go for 2.4.0, the "only" question is who's going to do the release 
notes and who's going to do the bugfixing work during a few beta releases on 
the way to 2.4.0.

As an example, my answer to these questions goes as follows: I'm all in for a 
2.4.0 release ASAP; in fact, I already use it in daily work, despite its 
potential pitfalls. On the other hand, I have only little time for bugfixing 
and/or discussion of this and gnucash issues in general during November / 
December this year (to give a number: approx. 3-4 hours per week). And I know 
for certain that due to job changes in January I will have zero time for at 
least the first half of next year (in numbers: at most 1 hour per week). In 
other words, in 2009 I will agree to whatever those who do the work will 
decide :-)
