As said, this is correct with regard to deployment. We will not, though, halt developing phase 2 until phase 1 is fully deployed. So development of phase 1 is finished, its deployment is not yet. And we cannot promise or predict when deployment of phase 1 will be completely finished.

Development of phase 2, in the meanwhile, is continuing.

I hope that clears it up.

I am afraid that phase #1 should be finished in the moment, when
wikidata-interwiki-data are used by other wikis. And this is not yet.
Now Wikidata are some kind of toy, but when these data are not used
and when (almost all) interwiki bots updates only other wikis but not
the wikidata, phase #1 is not finished.
