One final last call for stable/queens. Tomorrow I will be proposing patches to
mark all deliverables as Extended Maintenance by adding a queens-em tag. After
this point, there will be no more official releases for any queens

I took another quick look at unreleased commits today, and there are a few
projects that still have some things that might be good to release. As
mentioned though, downstream consumers can always pick these up as needed once
we are past the point of doing official community releases.

Some things do not need to be released. Things like CI job changes, internal
documentation, and testing fixes are all good, but not something that needs to
be delivered in a "release" of that project. Bug fixes, translations,
requirements updates, etc., though are useful things.
