Yay! And when is this issue scheduled to be sent out (for those of us  
not foreign seed donors)?

I went to the APHIS/PPQ website earlier this week to see if they had  
any information there yet. After searching all over I've concluded  
that they hadn't updated the website with information or forms for  
this yet, although I did see an unlinked link about it on one of the  
pages. (I also tried to sign up for the electronic submission of  
forms and the final step requires one to show up in person at a USDA  
office that accepts this kind of verification with government ID in  
hand. Unfortunately, the two listed for people living in Los Angeles  
County are far away from the metropolitan area. And they have to be  
visited during weekday business hours, making this a really  
bothersome, if not somewhat difficult, step to accomplish for the  
likes of me.)
