Thanks for the details. For now I've made the assumption that four calendar weeks will be needed for the JUGs testing so I can come up with an M7 date. If the assumption turns out to not be valid after you've spoken to the project leads then I'll revisit the date. If you could let me know once you've had the chance to speak to the various project leads that would be great.

Kind regards,
