Hi Oslo team,

Is there anything that hinders the transition to EOL? This thread is 
seemingly got stuck somewhere.

...the periodic stable job failure count is still quite high, mostly 
because oslo's old stable branches are still failing :-/ Since those 
gates are broken for several months now and no patches were able to 
land, I think moving oslo's rocky, queens and pike branches to End of 
Life is unfortunately quite reasonable.

(Also note, that I've just sent a mail about mass-EOL Pike series [1])
