Yes, I intended to guess that, and I suspect they simply implemented the 
guess accurately.  It would be better to have confirmation of the guess, 

A bit more searching in my part found the Egyptian State Information 
Service's announcement of cabinet approval here:


but I'm afraid this doesn't tell us anything new.  We still have no 
confirmation of the details we need to know, such as the time of 
transition on May 15 and the dates and times later this year.
