Absolutely. Starting from the review commencement notification on the
15th, you should expect the branch URL (most likely 'master', if not a
specific 'review' branch) listed in that e-mail to be frozen for the
entire period of the review.

Vladimir will be free to use any other branches in his repository to
make changes, and is also encouraged to share these branches with
reviewers, who can then reflect on the changes he is considering in
response to review feedback.
