Does anyone know when South African Airways will be a full member of Star Alliance?

TAP is expected to join end of March 2005 and SAA was announced a couple of weeks earlier on star alliance's homepage.
But since then SAA calmed down. We haven't heard anything about their expected network adjustments (ATL to IAD and DL to UA). So I wouldn't expect them earlier than March 2005, maybe ven Summer 2005 due to their restructuring problems.
By the way Croatian Airlines and Adria are expected to join January 2005as regional members and Blue1 already joined as such.
