Hi DAMs,
  I'm wondering what actually happened with this, so flow of questions
follows :)

- do you actually performed a first WaT run with the now past DPL vote?

- if yes can you please give some figures? (not names of course, but
  number of sent mail inquiries, number of replies, number of DDs who
  entered the Emeritus status after receiving the email, ....)
  If it's too time consuming and if the data are publicly available
  somewhere I'll be glad to collect the numbers by myself, but I doubt
  the second assumption is correct.

- if no ... why?

Many thanks for the initiative!
