I think that's great news!
I've been using CS2 since it became an option and it even (mostly) worked
fine for me, so I've been waiting for so long for this upgrade.

Where should I direct issues I find in review-dev.openstack.org? I've found
two so far:
- "Unified diff" button in diff view (next to navigation arrows) always
leads to Internal Server Error;
- cgit links in change screen have "%2F" in URL instead of "/" which leads
to Apache's Not Found instead of cgit's one.
