Sorry, my bad.  I totally forgot about that e-mail, which was over
three months ago.  The timeframe seems a bit long to me, but okay, it
works.  So if I understand correctly, on October 15 the tests will all
be moved to the approved folder?

Yeah, sorry about that.  I'm happy as long as there's some definite
plan to approve the tests, even if it will take a while.  I just
forgot that there actually was one.  Never mind me.
