In short, stable is features-freezed.

Exactly, it's one of the first thing I will do (toolchain-kernel). May
not be too long, something like 1 month.

We have 2 separate wok, sometine dev commit in both if needed.

I will help update all e17 packages.

Nice idea, you welcome to commit when you are ready.
