You can see that only yesterday (Dec 8th) we had the first official merge on this repo - this is the reason for the lack of commits.
Marvell Switching group took strategic decision to open some aspects of the Prestera family devices with the Open Source community and this is the first step. 
As you realized - it will be used as a queue for all the features targeted to be upstreamed.
New features are expected to be sent to net-next very soon. (Like ACL/LAG/LLDP etc...)
