What's the process until a package arrives to the updates repository?

I’m trying to understand how Fedora 35 has been released with LLVM 13.0.0 RC1 (Index of /sites/dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/35/Everything
/x86_64/os/Packages/l/llvm-13.0.0~rc1-1.fc35.x86_64.rpm), with no updates (Index of /sites/dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/updates/35/Everything/x86_64/Packages/l), not even in testing (Index of /pub/fedora/linux/updates/testing/35/Everything/x86_64/Packages/l).

Looking at https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/llvm/commits/f35 I can see the branch has gone through multiple release candidates and the final release, which is already one month old. When should I expect the final release in the updates repository, and how can I follow the progress?

I see that an update was initially pushed, but then unpushed because it requires other packages to also be rebuilt:

The maintainer has noted there that they intend to push it out again once the Fedora 35 freeze is over (which happened yesterday with the release of Fedora 35). So I’d expect it to happen soon.
