Development branch vs. 2.x.y branch

I am using Transifex to obtain (and update) the .pot files to translate 
Pidgin to Portuguese.

I noticed that each language has two different .pot files available, one 
for the development branch and another for the 2.x.y branch. However, 
I'm not sure what is the difference between the two.

We began translating the development branch, because that file was 
already about 50% translated and I also discovered that for many 
languages that is the only translated file.

Our biggest question is this: if we manage to complete the translation 
of the development branch, will this translation be incorporated in 
future Pidgin updates such as 2.10.7? Or perhaps only on version 3.0.0?

Thanks in advance for helping to clarify this. :)
