Just one explanation: what is lammps-icms branch for?

the lammps-icms branch contains LAMMPS-ICMS, a customized version of
LAMMPS maintained here at temple that has modifications, e.g. to
simplify building binary packages, and some more experimental
features. before the change that steve announced, all contributions to
LAMMPS, that were submitted as pull requests on github, would first be
merged into lammps-icms, and then converted back into patches/tar
files to be included into the upstream LAMMPS version hosted in the
sandia subversion repository. there is still a bit of a backlog of
moving changes from LAMMPS-ICMS to LAMMPS, but after that is
completed, the branch and the custom LAMMPS-ICMS version will go away.
all new contributions are going to be directly included into LAMMPS.
