LHC re-start scheduled for 2009

Yesterday the rumour has been made public: the LHC re-start has been scheduled for next year. Due to the problems that occured recently the needed repairs will take until the common CERN winter shutdown (which will not be cancelled) and therefore the first beam is expected for next year only.
The re-start is planned for early spring now, but what exactly this means is not defined!?
Here’s the official press release.
