Default Snapshot Packages Empty - part of commit?

Greetings, all - it's been awhile; and hope all is well with everyone.

I've a "Port Guard" level question for you:
Q1: I was using OBSD by means of installing snapshots, updating from time to time whenever my packages would no longer update due to library compatibilities, etc.

Noticed that we had a hard commit for 5.0 announced a few days ago; and since then, the snapshots/packages/"CPU_ARCH" folders have been emptied.

I looked around the sites a bit; but couldn't find any explanations, nor did I find a "development roadmap calendar" - like the ones found on the Linux Distros - listed on the OBSD site. (am I asking for a berating here?

Can anyone explain to me more about this phenomenon? I'm presuming dev efforts are being redirected to "clean up" the OS Snapshots and/or the 5.0 OS code for a few days. 6 weeks seems a bit too long to leave packages alone.

Thank you in advance!
