The BIG merges for every modules have started, some are finished.

Then this "Updating" notice doesn't have much meaning in this very short periode. I would suggest only important bug fix should go into stable branch. All general updates should happen in dev branch after the frozen. Better to happen 1 or 2 months before next BIG merges, sth like July or August, I guess.
