It's good enough to use and you can go ahead and take photographs.

Develop the next one longer, for sure. But even if you just do what you have here...

Variable Contrast paper will be able to easily work with the negatives you have just made.
You are right, with this results I'll have some printable negs, and, because it's easy to make another test increasing the developing time I'll do it. But suddenly I have the feeling that I didn't give enough time exposure to the zone VIII to balance the reciprocity factor, so I have a conundrum, expose longer for zone VIII and give the same developing time or expose the same and give more developing time, or both, more exposure and more developing.
