First review round: 9.9 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Accepted.

The overall process was overall positive. The first review round was a bit long, but the editor kept us informed during the process (they had difficulties to find the secound reviewer). The communication with the editor was very good (ie very polite, quicks answers, didn't blindly rely the reviewers opinions). The reviewers were competent on the subject.
