    It says the following
    During the crew's sleep period, flight controllers are scheduled to raise the Station's orbit.
    Controllers will fire the Progress 13 cargo ship's engines to boost the Station's altitude from
    227 miles (365.3 kilometers) to 229.3 miles (369 kilometers). The engine burn is slated to last 8
    minutes. Two more reboost maneuvers are scheduled to prepare the ISS for the arrival of Soyuz
    spacecraft carrying the Expedition 9 crew in late April.
    That one down, two to go:)
    Just confirm's my thoughts, that the reason a reboost was done, was because of the upcoming sozuy
    No info on the last to burns to be perfomed yet.
