Hey,Thanks Xarthisius and Meg!
Meg - so you're on E3, and you don't want to apply for DS260, right?
Brit's video on large case numbers is a great explainer for the anxiety related to high case numbers, and why the selected CN can vary significantly. There may be higher % of holes and a lot more entries without passports that are disqualified.
Data is here for those interested:

 CEAC Data, Xarthisius: dvcharts.xarthisius.xyz/ceacFY22.html
 Large Case numbers, Brit Simon: youtu.be/ZQaG26L7-CE
I'm just getting acquainted to the data and interpretations. Apologies for any misquotes.
Do we know as yet the total number of DV visas that would be allocated in OC in FY2024?
Yes my husband is currently on E3. We've been here for 7 years now.
We are likely going the AOS route so are in no hurry to submit DS-260 and actually it's not necessary to submit for AOS anyhow. However still keeping tabs on the CP process incase something comes up and we change our minds. I'm hesitant to submit the DS-260 in case our case number isn't called. Looking at past visa bulletins, I believe it's only been twice that our CN hasn't been called (we are OC16xx) BUT you never know what's going to happen next year.
I'm interested in finding out what the highest OC case number is for FY2024.
I believe it is 55,000 DV's every year that are allocated for the lottery.
