Hello V Stuart,

I thought it would be best to keep them open just in case there is a
plan to implement it in a short period of time, but as you said, it's
true it might take longer than expected.

Anyway, today we have the esc meeting, let me ask it there before we
take any action.

I'll keep you updated.
