Is there a timetable for this?

I've checked all my own relevant SlackBuilds as being OK for the change
(and klaatu seems to have already checked most/all others).

Will all the renaming changes happen automagically in the background
sometime or will maintainers each have to apply them to their own
SlackBuilds? One of my SlackBuilds currently needs updating to a new
version (though not urgently). How to proceed - should I incorporate any
jack related changes now or sit tight?
