We got an e-mail into the dev asking Santhonax...
and for a few others don't forget in the forum agreement we do not allow bashing of other forums or mods... "bunch of dicks' would be crossing that line... FYI.
You guys have been great about asking questions, so never had a concern about your end of things. The general concensus seems to be (at the developer forums at least) that the developers are super, super busy working on the game before it launches. Good on em' on the one hand, but fairly worrisome that it still needs that much work just before launch on the other.
The game is done (as I understand it) and a nice shade of gold.
Setting-up distribution channels and getting inventory to suppliers is supposedly as painful and cumbersome as some development. I know of at least one big distributor who will not list till they have inventory in their warehouse, then after it arrives, the SKU stuff has to be logged-in, forms, pricing in multiple dominions....etc., etc.
