[neutron][stadium][stable] Proposal to make stable/ocata and stable/pike branches EOL

Ocata is unfortunately unmaintained for a long time as some general test 
jobs are broken there, so as a stable-maint-core member I support to tag 
neutron's stable/ocata as End of Life. After the branch is tagged, 
please ping me and I can arrange the deletion of the branch.

For Pike, I volunteered at the PTG in 2020 to help with reviews there, I 
still keep that offer, however I am clearly not enough to keep it 
maintained, besides backports are not arriving for stable/pike in 
neutron. Anyway, if the gate is functional there, then I say we could 
keep it open (but as far as I see how gate situation is worsen now, as 
more and more things go wrong, I don't expect that will take long). If 
not, then I only ask that let's do the EOL'ing first with Ocata and when 
it is done, then continue with neutron's stable/pike.

For the process please follow the steps here: 
(with the only exception, that in the last step, instead of infra team, 
please turn to me/release team - patch for the documentation change is 
on the way:
