This looks excellent, Doug!

Thank you Release & Infra teams!

I do have one question, will creating the branch's end-of-life
eventually work the same way? For example, Glance's projects were
missed in the recent liberty end of life work. Could we submit a
review to do that work so Josh & Tony don't have to or is that
something that isn't planned to work through openstack/releases?
