As said in the announce, if ephy-webkit 2.24 is not user ready we will
release ephy-gecko from 2.22 branch, that means we will just
re-release the current stable ephy with the obvious fixes and updates.
Don't worry :).

Since you are a deplyoment case, we would appreciate a lot if you give
us some concrete suggestions about how can we improve ephy for this
cases. So we can have it in mind for the webkit port.
