Coronavirus is still causing delays, mostly ripple effect from the period of downtime at this point. Many projects (and updates on them) will be at stand still for the next few months. Almost all timelines are subject to change once we get updates from the various manufacturers.

Rama caps have arrived. The keycap sets are being produced now and should complete in the next few months. There's not a firm timeline yet, but should be by the end of the year.

EV-01 Switches

Durock has confirmed they are on schedule, with estimated production completion mid-November.

GMK Copper

Purchase order was placed late February. Production was estimated for 24 weeks and then will have another month of transit from GMK to our distribution center. Estimated shipping was for September/ October, but there are couple of projects delayed by GMK that need to ship first. This should be one of the next sets completing from them, after Yugo.

Some vendors are being slow to communicate final numbers, but we should be placing the order with GMK soon.
