We have *nearly* fixed Ussuri (thank you Riccardo!) and just started looking into Train (thank you Iury and Mark), I'm sure we cannot keep EM branches in a decent shape. Personally I feel that Bifrost is more geared towards consumers staying close to master, but my gut feeling may not necessarily match the reality.

If it's not an overkill burden, I would suggest following Kolla's
policy where we in fact keep one last EM branch alive in practice
(older ones rot much too quickly).
That would mean still caring about Stein until Train goes EM too.
