well you dont need to close it without an exception
the way exception work we normlly give a dealin of 1 week to finalise the spec after its granted
so basiclaly unless you think we can fully agreee all the outstanding items before thursday week and merge it
then you should just retarget the spec to the backlog or W release and keep working on it rather then ask for an
excption. exception are only for thing that we expect to merge in victoria including the code.
