Well, the good news is that the mail-in votes are now in and counted and all four items that the USCCB failed to approve at their June meeting have now passed. That is certainly an indication that the new translation will move forward... inching slowly toward a recognitio from Rome.
It's interesting to see the process, the progress and the occasional substantial minority opposition from some. See http://www.usccb.org/comm/archives/2009/09-159.shtml for the USCCB news release and the voting numbers.
Yes, whether we agree with this or not, it seems inevitable that we will have those new tranlations!
