Hello, again! I just picked up a Galaxy Nexus (Verizon), and am wondering why if I may have missed a root forum while scanning the humungous home page. Is rooting covered on this site?

I am getting a Galaxy Nexus tomorrow in a trade. My S3 for a Galaxy Nexus 32GB plus $90 cash. It's the Verizon i515 model. I was thinking about rooting it when I got it. I also have some questions about it, though.
1) I heard from a friend that has the Galaxy Nexus Sprint model, and he said I have to unlock the phone before rooting it.
I'm not trying to start a you should root and install a custom ROM debate, but I'm a little shocked that the GS4 is getting Android 4.3 before the GNex. Even though Verizon is slow to push out updates, I always took solace in the fact that I still received the updates before any other phones on VZW.
Now I'm wondering in we'll ever see an official 4.3 from Verizon.
