I'm fine with this.

There's some guy on the forums who can't run 2.3b3 but is fine on
2.2.4. Go talk to him. I think his username is SCAVANGER or something?

Per our IRC conversation, I feel that "one or two weeks" is too short.
I'm thinking something like six months. The lobby server should be
yelling at them to upgrade the whole time.

Most large projects support versions far older than six months. While
we don't have the manpower to do that, we also shouldn't intentionally
refuse to do something as simple as leaving the lobby on. Remember,
the latest version of Ubuntu will have no version of Warzone later
than 2.2.2 until April 2010.

All the more reason not to retire the 2.2 server so early.
