Joe, from my perspective I think a week is perfectly ok and appreciated.

I was concerned when I saw Tony's response because it sounded more "if" 
than "when" it would get done.  That might not have been the intention, 
but it is how it reads to me.

Would it be helpful to create a JIRA ticket for this request?  I think 
our post-PRC team is more concerned with tracking the request than a 
specific timeline.
