Hi Philippe,
current status is that
1.Rich and I have provided text for which we are waiting for review [2]
2. there is a new point of possible contention for which Rich (and I concur
with his request) has requested a removal [1]

The amount of time it will take to reach an agreeement is wholly dependent
on the rate at which the parties involved communicate in regards to these
outsanding issues.
