Trying to amplify this.

The date for Queens to transition to Extended Maintenance is next week. Late in
the week we will be proposing a patch to tag all deliverables with a
"queens-em" tag. After this point, no additional releases will be allowed.

I took a quick look through our stable/queens deliverables, and there are
several that look to have a sizable amount of patches landed that have not been
released. Elod was super nice by including all of that for easy checking in [2]

As part of Extended Maintenance, bugfixes can (and should) be cherry-picked to
stable/queens. But once we enter Extended Maintenance, there won't be any
official releases and it will be up to downstream consumers to pick up these
fixes locally as they need them.

So consider this a last call for stable/queens releases.
