AFAIK no flavor features can be committed to the official repo yet (a
commit hook will prevent the commit).

The feature is in for private testing.

My understanding is that commits with flavors will be allowed to head
starting in 2018, so the first quarterly with flavors in it should
happen for 2018Q2. But, being the feature in by 2018Q1 backported
updates may include flavors.
