Right. My first intention was to switch all to "in progress" and then
switch a subset of that back to the previous status, depending on their
activity. I see now that this would cause confusion. 
I'll process them seperately like Thierry suggested to avoid that
confusion. I'll announce the expected changes in the next days before
I actually execute them.
