How reliable is this 'rumour'?

Possibly the 'rumour' is when testing will commence.. rather than 
regular customer operations?
Report in Aug 2018 said no earlier than 5 th May... so it is possible.

There .. having said all that it is now certain to start early May:))
Despite that.. I'd not add it until we have official confirmation... 
don't want to jinx it.
