Thank you very much Andrew for the confirmation.

I dont really understand this part of what your saying here. 
Can you explain this a bit more? 

So far, at least now i can start the run my full build now for buster, so patiance guys. 
It it all works out, i can up this weekend the 4.12 packages. 

So far, 

And to everybody, hold on, Corona will pass. 
Im following this very closely with info from a corona researcher. 

Respect the rules now, avoid contacts.
This is the only way to slow this down .. 
Remember 4-27 days of incubation keeps spreading it. 

China, about 1-2 more weeks and a real down should be seen, its already started to slowing down here.
Europa, expected around 2-3-4 weeks before the downturn should kick in. 
US, expect still 3-5 weeks, inland traveling isnt banned enough. 

But the tide is turning!! 
Good luck and hold on all. !!
