Months of re-org.

Part of the problem was probably the German federal elections in the Autumn. That led to a powerless government as the old regime under Merkel held the status quo, whilst the SDP was in discussions with the other parties to form a coalition in the new parliament. I don't know for a fact, but I could see the deal being put on hold, until the new political direction was in place and could take a look at it, which was only in the last month or so - so 3 months on pause.
