French term or phrase: Celer = Sceller ?
An email says that the parties are about to "celer" their cooperation agreement. To me, it seems to be an error: "celer" instead of "sceller". They certainly don't mean to "conceal" their deal. However, someone is claiming that "celer" can also mean something like "sign" or "close" a deal or a contract. Can anyone attest to this use?
Thank you very much for your help!

agree  Germaine: quand on veut "celer" une entente, on n'écrit pas qu'on est "sur le point" de le faire et surtout pas dans un courriel qui ne protège en rien la confidentialité!
