the prob here is the speed and amount of build machines, to my knowledge
it took up to three months to rebuild the whole of main with the buildds
we had when we started the arm port, now we have slower machines but
more of them which will roughly level out the loss off power here but
likely still generate issues to get everything done in time ...

right, thats why we wait until DIF to have a proper overview ...
