This assumes, of course, that mac 2.3.X builds are possible :)  How do you want to coordinate?  Shall I just send you an e-mail?  Do you have a daily svn build so that if 2.3.X is tagged, you can easily produce a .dmg?

I've actually got a 2.3.8 build built and ready to bundle for installation. I'm holding off to get the PERLINC issue sorted out. 

You told the list that you'd tagged 2.3.8 but didn't say when you were planning to upload the tarballs and make an announcement. If you add that information and give a few days lead time, I should be able to build the tagged revision and bundle it up to meet the release date.

I don't do nightly builds, never mind nightly bundles. Derek wanted to set that up on a VM somewhere, but we got distracted by other things and never got it going. I suppose it would be a good idea for me to set it up locally so if something breaks I'll see it without having to spend a lot of time bisecting to find the problem.  (A nightly build wouldn't necessarily line up with a tagged release, so it's just a QA check, not something that would save time for bundling a release.)
