Just so that you know:

1) You cannot create any new bug using Bugzilla 2.23.2. We just 
discovered a bug in post_bug.cgi (regression) due to the removal of 
globals.pl, see bug 344497.

The fix is a one-liner: add "use Bugzilla::Component;" at line 39 in 

The patch has been reviewed and is waiting for approval (or a second 
review, invoking the emergency checkin procedure).

2) You cannot install or upgrade to Bugzilla 2.23.2 using Perl 5.8.0. 
The problem has been fixed meanwhile and will be in 2.23.3 (in a few 

Regressions were to be expected when you know that 95% of the CGI 
scripts have been altered with the removal of globals.pl, making testing 
everything pretty hard.
