When they say "ramping up" that is a good sign. This will allow them to go full throttle whenever they feel like it, and if they have problems, they can say they were simply testing. I think they are going to start using it, but are using words that are safe.

It shouldn't be long now, bou of course, there could always be unforseen problems that delay release. Hence, it will be ready when its ready.
