Unless I've misunderstood the recent TC discussions around supported
platform overlap, the new release cadence, and upgrade testing, it's
my understanding that we'll still at least need to test that we can
upgrade from Zed to Anchovy/Anteater/Antelope on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
(future A->B and A->C upgrade testing will be able to just use 22.04
LTS though), so it's not going away entirely for master branch tests
until B.

In the past, Ubuntu has waited to backport a new Python minor
version until after its .1 point release is available. For 3.11.1
that's scheduled to be approximately 2 months after 3.11.0 is done,
so expect early December. That puts any Jammy backport of it into
2023 at the earliest, I expect, at best a couple of months before we
release so probably not soon enough in the cycle for meaningful
testing before master is open for B cycle work.
