I never said we should wait, in fact my first email said it was the
right thing to do and should be done. I guess I wasn't clear enough.
I'm not saying we should avoid the work now, but actually the exact
opposite: I wanted to make sure people knew that this was going on so
that we would do the work now. My fear was FF arriving and there still
being many broken packages because not enough people were involved
because they were not aware of the change.

That's all I wanted to know: we confident that it will get done by FF
at the current pace.
