Hi Manuel,

I am very sorry to hear this, but like you said, it is better to announce
such a thing earlier rather than later.

For me it would be helpful what you experienced as taking more time than
expected. Perhaps it is something we could at least help other countries
with to do more efficiently.

With kind regards,
