Again this was a courtesy rather than an injustice: LPI-Approved
Training Material partners (as represented by LinupFront) were notified
first.  To earn "LPI Approved" status requires some $$ investment on
their part.  As partners we have a responsibility to give them advance

However, the difference in notification can probably be numbered in days.

And in anticipation from hearing from everyone else in the world today:
No, Central Europe was not treated preferentially over any other
region--they were just quicker in getting the message out.


P.S.  Please note that "official" and "approved" are not the same thing.
