Thanks Jürgen for this reminder
We should provide a HTML page with some help how to download and test the master version. Otherwise Windows, Linux and Mac users who are not developpers (and compilers) would not be able to help us testing the master version.
I remember there is one download page with a new Master Windows build every week. Having the same for other distributions would help. Do you think builders could provide some help to build a  single wiki page "Try the last Master for Windows, Linux and mac distros ? Or this page already exists ?
Having a single link could help us in this list to call for testers among the end users (via twitter and other channels)

I'd like to remind everyone that the 2.3 development cycle ended at 12:00 UTC. We are now in feature freeze on the road to the 2.4 release on 2014-06-20<http://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/generic?p0=1440&iso=20140620T12&year=2014&month=6&day=20&hour=12&min=0&sec=0&msg=2.4%20Release> (almost 28 days away; see also roadmap<http://qgis.org/en/site/getinvolved/development/index#road-map.html>).

Now we, the community, need to prepare QGIS for release. No new features will be added anymore.  Users, if not already begun, should now start extensive testing of master and report bugs on the hub<http://hub.qgis.org>. Developers should move their focus from creating new features to fixing bugs.   Translators can can continue their work (Werner updated the translations in master. Thanks! Note that this might be an incremental process as - although there is feature freeze - bug fixes could still change or add translation strings).

The nightly builds of QGIS testing available for Windows<http://www.qgis.org/en/site/forusers/alldownloads.html#windows>, Linux (Debian<http://www.qgis.org/en/site/forusers/alldownloads.html#id3> and Ubuntu<http://www.qgis.org/en/site/forusers/alldownloads.html#qgis-testing>) and Mac OS<http://www.qgis.org/en/site/forusers/alldownloads.html#id13> are now effectively snapshots of what's going to be released.  Except of course for the bugs that are going to be fixed until release day.  For Windows there will also continue to be weekly snapshots of the standalone installer that can serve as Release Candidate<http://www.qgis.org/downloads/weekly/>.

Lets keep up working together to make 2.4 another great release.
