At the time, I didn't think anything of this, but was reading through the 
8.2.x release notes yesterday and the above now feels like an inconsistency 
with what was done with 8.2.2, which we gave an official release date,  and 
the subsequent 8.2.3, which was released 2 days later. Now, I supposed 8.2.2 
was further in the release process, but it was pretty much DOA as well. 
Probably too late to do anything about this now, though I wonder, do we plan 
to put 8.3.2 tarballs into the ftp-archives? We have 8.2.2 tarballs 
available, though I can't imagine why anyone would need them.
