[infra][release] delete old EOL'd stable branches

Hi Infra Team!

In October there was a discussion at Release Team meeting [1] about what 
can we do with the old, already EOL'd but not yet deleted branches (this 
is possible since with the Extended Maintenance process the 
general/"mass" EOL'ing was stopped and tagging a project branch EOL does 
not delete the branch anymore).

Related to this, I would like to ask two things:

1. I've used the list_eol_stale_branches.sh [2] script to get the list 
of such not-yet-deleted branches for Ocata [3]. They are all tagged with 
'ocata-eol', but stable/ocata branch still exists for them. Could you 
please delete these? [3]

2. On the Release Team meeting [1] we were hinted that with the newer 
version of gerrit (that was installed at the end of November) some 
automation is possible through gerrit API in the future. Can I get some 
help about where should I start with the automation? Which repository 
should I look, where can the deletion being triggered ("similarly like 
branch creation")?

Thanks in advance,
