right - you asked for this a few weeks ago but apparently nobody on the list 
answered your question. In the meantime you obviously registered an account 
on sorceforge and Derek added you to the gnucash project, so now you should 
be able to do the sourceforge uploads yourself as well.

Here's how: When you are logged in in sourceforge, on the gnucash project page 
you will see the "Manage Package / Releases" link in the upper left part of 
the page. There, you have to add your new release by clicking "Add Release" 
in the "gnucash (unstable)" package to create a "2.3.0" release. Out of 
curiosity I've just done this step already, so now you need to go to 
the "Edit Release" page and select the "2.3.0" release, which brings you to 
the "Edit Existing Release" page,

The "Edit Release" page IMHO is fairly straightforward and sourceforge also 
has plenty of documentation on what to do there. In any case, eventually you 
need to upload your 2.3.0 tarball to the sourceforge servers, for which 
several methods are available. I prefer the "Rsync over SSH" method, but any 
of the others would work as well.

I hope this should give you enough pointers so that you can prepare the 2.3.0 
package for download on sourceforge as well. Don't hesitate to ask if there 
are further questions about this process.

Thanks a lot for stepping forward and releasing this new version! Way to go!
