Thanks, Tobias, for the feedback.

Since we haven't heard any objections for almost one month,
I'll start submitting patches to transition these branches to EOL.

Thanks for proposing this, I think we should retire these branches
but let’s see if we get any other feedback.

Best regards

In puppet repos we have plenty of stable branches still open, and the oldest
is now stable/queens.
However recently we haven't seen many backports proposed to stein, rocky
and queens [1], so I'll propose retiring these three old branches now.

Please let me know if anybody is interested in keeping any of these three.

Note that currently CI jobs are broken in these three branches and it is likely
we need to investigate the required additional pinning of dependent packages.
If somebody is still interested in maintaining these old branches then these jobs
should be fixed.

Thank you,
