1. This could mean either one, depending on the context. #2 is best. #3 is incorrect. #4 is very awkward. #5 is correct, yes.

1and2 are not the same. 1 is a command; 2 is a statement of fact. 3 and 4 mean about the same thing. 5 and 6 mean about the same thing, too.
May 20, 2014

English
1and 2 mean the same, yes, and 1 is more commonly used. 3, 4, and 5 mean about the same thing, but they're wordy. I'd say, "He is going to London tomorrow."

English
1and 3 mean the same thing: in fewer than 30 minutes. 2 means delivery took longer than 30 minutes.

In this exchange, "it" is referring to a tradition or, yes, an ambiguous practice.
