Whatever isn't done by EOL can be taken to ELTS (if supported there). And it
either gets dropped from here or possibly kept if it's relevant for jessie.
As for my bits:

This is for jessie, it's here because by the time ESR 60 is out, jessie will be
LTS and will need a DLA. Added here to avoid duplicated work, as I'm already
looking at it.

There shouldn't be much to do here. Some mappings will need to be updated, e.g.
the one in bin/tracker_data.py for lts=jessie, but as Salvatore said that should
happen once jessie becomes LTS later in June (and he will take care of that).
