The EOL process is still a little different because it relies on
branch deletion, which is not an explicit permission we can delegate
in the version of Gerrit we're running today. There's some
indication that it will be possible in Gerrit 2.14 (not yet
released) and we might even be able to backport that feature to 2.13
(the version to which we're currently working on upgrading). So yes,
there is an expectation we will safely automate EOL'ing but we don't
have an exact timeline for it yet.
