Source code and pkg/dmgs for MacPorts 2.3.0-rc2 are now
available [1]. Testing of either of these install methods is helpful.

Be prepared to encounter bugs. As always, having a recent backup would
be wise. Please report any bugs that you find [2] (after first searching
Trac [3], of course!)

If no showstopping bugs are found in the next few days, this will become
the 2.3.0 release.

There are a large number of changes in this release. See the ChangeLog
[4] for a list of most of them. You may like to focus your testing on
the new features in that list, as well as your normal usage.

Changes since rc1 are:
 * Fixed files being installed with too restrictive permissions when the
user has a restrictive umask.
 * Portability fixes (for the rsync server, which generates the PortIndex)
