This is primarily because there still is nothing concrete to
report.[1] I will be preparing a summary of what has happened and is
happening shortly; until that time, please bear with me as I attempt
to resolve this issue without enflaming the situtation[2] further.

1: Concrete in this situtation being a final resolution of the issues
