Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"Preparing for an exit" is not a yes/no question. It spans a continuum.

At one end you have "outside their frame of reference."

At the other end, you have "detailed implementation plan on file, with multiple contingency options at each critical stage gate, cadres already mobilized, key institutions suborned, and key stakeholders mapped and scheduled for subvertion or subjugation."

It is clear from Syriza's public record that they do not consider a Grexit unthinkable, so that's already a major improvement over the previous government. It is also clear from their negotiating stance that they do not have a plan that they can go out an execute tomorrow.

But beyond that, as Upstate NY notes, it is not possible to divine from the public record where on the continuum from idle speculation to detailed time table they are.
