Hi all,

As you may already know, we have deprecated classic drivers in the Queens 
release. We don't have specific removal plans yet. But according to the 
deprecation policy we may remove them at any time after May 1st, which will be 
half way to Rocky milestone 2. Personally, I'd like to do it around then.

The `online_data_migrations` script will handle migrating nodes, if all required 
hardware interfaces and types are enabled before the upgrade to Queens. 
Otherwise, check the documentation [1] on how to update your nodes.
