October is a long time.. I think it might go faster. From the last bulletin, they have ~17,000 cases that have a PD earlier than Jan.1.2008, which does not seem like a huge number to me. (especially when you consider that some folks in that may have already become eligible for GC through other avenues such as employment-based). I am hoping that it gets back to August 2010 around may/june time frame.
