I think you took this wrong, as I wasn't asking for the process to be rushed. I was simply asking if there was an estimate time of completion. Some people when nearing completion may be able to say "within a month this will be 100% complete" or whatever. It was a simple question and if there is no estimate time then it's probably not going to be very soon.
I just finished going through a comparable exercise where things are never ready as soon as they seem at the moment. I learned the hard way that making statements implying an approximate time frame just invites having to endure moaning and groaning from whiners. No matter how close to ready things may appear there are always hidden gotchas waiting to nip you in the keester when you least expect it.
