What's the prevailing wisdom?
You do all of the above. You can just give it a shot of co2 to seat the lid, and make sure there aren't any leaks, and then save it until there's a space in the kegerator. You can prime, or you can force carb. It doesn't matter at all, except the primed beer might have more sediment.
If you do prime, make sure you pull the pressure release valve before putting it on the gas to serve, just to ensure you don't have any back flow from the keg.
I don't prime in the keg any more, since force carbing is so quick and easy, but I've done it before without any issues.
