Not really a surprise, but I support doing this soon. Next week seems fine

I don't think we need to do a point release, there will be the icehouse-eol
tag which will mark the same thing. But, even if we later decide to add a
point release to mark the same thing it is trivial to push another tag for
the same sha1.
