@tophat - No, that's not the idea at all
If you read the update carefully, you can make out the production statuses of all the items. This is mainly how I stay informed.
The first large batch of Lockitron Bolts is assembled, packaged, shrink wrapped and heading out from our factory via air freight now.
These units are Quicksilver Bolts without Bridge; once they arrive at our U.S. facility we’ll be shipping them on to you. Once your order ships you’ll receive an email confirmation along with tracking information.
So Quicksilver (Non-Bridge) units are going out. This is true. This is evidenced by the various pictures included later in the update:
The lock factory has packaging, circuit boards that are programmed, and continue to produce locks in quantity.
Bridge is built in three stages as they break it down on the blog. Once those batches are completed, they go to the lock factory where they get packaged in with the Bolt units.
As the lock factory delivers units, they get sent, again in batches, to the US for fulfillment and processing.
Bridge and Lockitron units were temporarily slowed for the Lunar New Year, but that didn't stop the units that were already in transit from being fulfilled, and indeed, they are still heading out. The Lunar New Year celebrations are pretty much all wrapped up now, so it'll be business as usual shortly
The locks are produced in such quantity that it's really about getting the units, especially with bridge, out there into the world. I'd imagine most orders have Bridge and Quicksilver, so it's probably best to have those two combinations going out as soon as possible.
