The Blender Architecture Academy - any news?

I really want to join the Architecture Academy, but it’s locked, and the website only says “re-opens in winter 2013”.

I’ve been unable to find any information about re-opening, let alone reviews of the academy.

So, I’ve got some questions:

Will it re-open, if so, when?

If/When it re-opens, will the Blender Architecture Academy be available as a DRM-free download for all eternal private use?

How many GB’s of disk space does it require (when zipped and unzipped)?

Can you use the models and textures included as you please (ie. in your own projects)?
