I did not say the release had to be ready three weeks prior to shipping it. Only that the articles would have to be written three weeks before the release shipped, if we had an estimated release date. Anyway, it does not matter.

Unless someone disagrees, I think the best course of action would be to inform Sonny that we would rather wait immediately after the next release (whether 2007.1 or 2008.0) before commiting ourselves. I will also make sure to ask him how much we will be paid. (In the meanwhile, we can still plan and do a bit of research.) I will mail him tomorrow unless there are new elements of discussion by then.
