If you open the document you will find the answer.

If block.number >= HOMESTEAD_FORK_BLKNUM (eg. 100,000,000 (NOT YET SET IN STONE!) on livenet and Morden

At this moment it's simply not decided yet.

Edit, this has been confirmed now.

The Homestead block will be 1.150.000 for the main network which means the Homestead transition will be roughly around midday on Pi day and the Homestead block for the Morden network will be 494.000.

    It's 2m just so we don't accidentally hit it while the PR is merged in to develop. Accidental release of homestead would suck big time ;-) – Jeffrey W. Feb 25 '16 at 23:54
