[Arm-netbook] Schedule Updates?

I was reviewing the last update on Crowd Supply for the EOMA68 campaign [1], 
and taking information from that and from discussions on this list, it seems 
that the following timeline was being followed:

15th June: Crowd Supply update, prototype tested, DRAM tested and ordered,
           HDMI not tested

Late July: DRAM manufactured ("about a month to have the 8 Gbit 1600 MHz
           DDR3 x8 RAM ICs manufactured"), assembly begins (working from
           "three months after getting the cards back from assembly before
           shipping begins")

Late October: "delivery of the first units" (presumably "delivery" is the
              same as "shipping", meaning "dispatch" from Crowd Supply)

I hope that things have been proceeding as anticipated. August was a quiet 
month on this list, and I imagine that Luke has been very busy with all his 
projects, but I wonder if there is any news about whether the DRAM 
manufacturer came through, whether assembly could start, whether testing might 
have begun (and was hopefully a success), and so on. I imagine that there is 
also the awkward matter of getting the boards from China to the US, related 
bureaucracy, and other complicating factors.

Anyway, I hope everything is going well, that Luke isn't overworked, and that 
I didn't miss something that would have made the current state of the schedule 
a bit clearer.
