"Roughly a week" is a good guideline, I think.  You're right that it's
not any kind of hard and fast rule.

Well... one issue here was that your question was very similar to
another question, which the candidates answered.  You felt that that
was inadequate, but waited until it was far to late to before you even

Anyways, please do NOT take my suggestions as any kind of formal
requirement.  I was making suggestions, and was not handing down laws.
