Sean posted this message today:

A quick comment to let you know that the SPDC will go live next Tuesday (March 13th). There will be two modules available at this time. Expect some 'teething' issues as Clearspace is a new package and so on.
Also hairykrishna had some things to say today:
Sean and I are communicating via email. Not a lot of progress made yet- I'll give an update if/when there is!I'll keep monitoring what hairykrishna has to say.
