They will not be doing a 7. Just 8.

That said ... it's probably a great idea to take this conversation over 
to *their* mailing lists. There's an extent to which this conversation 
is relevant to this list - after all, we're all part of the same 
extended family now - but once it starts becoming a technical discussion 
of Alma itself, it's veering off-topic, and you'll get better answers 
over there.
