[chef][stable] Chef OpenStack retiring stable branches

The Chef OpenStack project still has a set of repos with stable/newton
branches, however those have been announced as EOL for more than a year
[0], but we missed to actually close them down. I plan to do so in a
couple of days unless there is some justified objection. See [1] for a
list of the affected repositories and the commit hashes that are
targeted to receive the "newton-eol" tag.
The situation with the stable/ocata branches is similar, but while we
did announce them as EOL in [0], too, the date mentioned there seems
wrong. Also, there seems to be some confusion about the situation for
the global OpenStack project, which doesn't seem to have retired
stable/ocata for any project yet. Still, we don't have any open patches
for stable/ocata, we don't have a working CI for it, and there also
isn't anyone using it known to me. So please respond if there is a
reason to keep the stable/ocata branches in their current state,
otherwise I'd start the process to tag them as EOL, too.
