Swiss paedriatric extensions: where are we now?

One of our readers has asked if he might use the good services of this weblog in order to crowd-source the following question:
What is the legislative status of the Swiss law that is intended to introduce paediatric extensions, similar to the existing EU law?
He tells us that the most recent information he has been able to find on the internet about it is from July 2013. So, he wonders, when is the law going to be introduced, and are any transitional provisions intended?

If you have any current information and don't mind sharing it, we'd be delighted to know -- and so would our reader.
