[manila][stable] moving some stable branches to EOL

Hello Stackers,

There have been no changes to the stable/ocata [1], driverfixes/mitaka
 [2], driverfixes/newton [3] and driverfixes/ocata [4] branches of
openstack/manila in a year [1] and the manila team today decided [2] that
it was time to close this branches. While we routinely get requests from
users, vendors and distributions to backport bug fixes to older releases,
no one seems to want any further changes in these branches.

We'd also like stable/pike to be EOL'ed, the last change to that branch was
a CVE fix made three months ago.

Keeping these branches open may give the impression that we'd continue to
take backports in, and support them with bugfixes, when the reality is that
we're struggling to keep meaningful testing in stable/queens and
stable/rocky branches - something we've seen most bugfix/backport requests

If there are no objections, I'll propose an EOL patch and request the infra
team to help delete these branches.
