There is an unstable branch but it is not fully functional nor up to
date with Hans files.

You can get a good idea by comparing what luaotfload has with current
context version in texlive. Some of the changes should be reported to
Hans (of general interest) but I didn't get around doing this, but was
planning to do that in the next few weeks.

Once our local changes is backported to ConTeXt, syncing the unstable
branch should not be hard, but the stable is unlikely to get synced
since ConTeXt beta require luatex 0.65.x at least.
