The 42 includes new releases like rarities, outtakes and other odds and ends – there are rumours of 43 going around. You can see the rumoured schedule here – note that the releases have been correct according to that list so far. Not every release is desirable to everyone admittedly but it would be unlikely to have them just shoved out – especially if Paul is involved in the deluxe editions and has a say in what is released.
Its also rumoured that the beatles releases are one of the reasons for the delay in Wings Over America coming out. If true, and we are entering the 50th Anniversaries for each Beatles album and other events (first US visit, concert at Shea etc) and can expect releases for those, we are not only going to have to be very selective over what we buy but there will be further delays.
Taking all that into consideration you can see my reasons for thinking we are going to be waiting a long time for the project to be completed.
Additionally we also have George hitting 70 next year and anything relating to John. Forget getting a new house or car or anything else and keep the spare cash for the releases, its going to be very expensive.

Unless, of course, the powers that be issue a 50th anniversary remastered Mini Cooper in 3 years!
Back on Topic: I am looking forward to both Macca remasters you mentioned. I too wish they would speed up the release process.
To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Im now going with the theory that Paul is looking at a 22 year campaign equaling how long it took Apple to release the remastered Beatles albums. The reason for the drip-drip effect is so we are not pining for the releases so much.

Im really looking forward to rock show (in my opinion the best concert film ever done) on dvd, and venus and mars, wings at the speed of sound, london town and back to the egg (which is, believe it or not, one of my favourite albums of all time (although I don't like it as much as abbey road)) remastered with bonus tracks. I'm sure there would be the glasgow versions of all the songs on that albums +mull of kintyre (london town) and goodnight tonight (back to the egg) on the bonus discs and possibly the kampuchea videos on the dvds and I'm really looking forward to that

Wings Across America and Rock Show are next, and supposedly they're being released in May! I think we might all be dead before they finish this whole Archive deal, which is why I try not to get too excited about it, only it's so hard not to!

At the beginning i was super excited but with the snail pace of releases i became bored, then with the pathetic way they sold the delux Ram with no sensibley pricey download i achieved the state of incredibly peeved off.
I will be 298 years old when this collection is finished and it will be Paul great-great grandson overing the final releases. How long does it take to put each one together, or is there 1 person working on it and they can only do the odd weekend? GET A MOVE ON!!

WogBlog has an update:
In a recent Universal Music Group showcase, as reported by Billboard, the company revealed their release schedule for 2013 and it was revealed that Concord is planning to unveil their remastered "Wings Over America" in an elaborate package on May 28th.
The original schedule for McCartney's remastered series was going to be "Venus and Mars" and "Wings At The Speed of Sound" as well as "Wings Over America", but plans change. I'm still hoping that the other two albums are going to be released along the way somewhere.
Also, it appears that the plans to release the 1981 "Rockshow" film from the 1976 Wings concert tour separately from the WOA boxed set has been dropped, and the film is now incorporated into the package.What happens to the television special "Wings Over The World" as far as release plans go, we don't know. However, it should fit in nicely with the "Wings At The Speed of Sound" release, just as snugly as the Australian Wings Concert Special from 1975 would fit the "Venus and Mars" remaster.
