It would appear that they are still figuring out their way to comply
with the settlement, likely prioritized by country of distribution.  I'd
estimate the timeline for completing settlement procedures of that kind
to be somewhere between 3-8 weeks.

Of course, once they do, you'll just stop talking about it.
