Subject: [Leica] XTOL Question

Mark et al

All this talk about XTOL has me interested in trying it, but I get very
confused about capacity when I read Kodak's information.  
I do my processing in a Jobo, 1 shot.  If I am diluting the developer 1:2
how much developer do I need? What times do you use? With extended
development times you can get up to 15 rolls per litre of stock solution (3
litres diluted). This would translate to 200ml dilute solution per roll, but
do I increase the times and by how much?
Am I making this more complicated than it needs to be?
Is anyone using a Jobo with XTOL?  What is your experiance?
