And, if it does not close today, when it then will be closed? All these dates are called provisional for 2 months now, but I don't have the impression the schedule is following the provisional dates... But they are the only dates published.

It is not the case.
We’re about a week or so behind the schedule; and we will announce here when the master branch closes.

Thanks for checking.
