This is a good thing to do so we avoid mistakes from both sides. I
usually follow the migrations in daily basis so you shouldn't need to
ping us but you can follow the sync status at:

Usually giving us few days to sync things are enough. This is more
serious when we're near of release and  then those migrations has
potential to delay the installer release.
