Release Schedule

Next Deadline: PRR Freeze, June 8th

Please opt-in your enhancements before June 8th to get PRReview. Final enhancement freeze is a week later.

LegacyServiceAccountTokenCleanUp alpha #115554

Bound service account tokens went GA in 1.22, and are the current and more secure way to allocate service tokens. However, automated generation of the older secret-based tokens is still enabled, and production clusters will have a lot of old tokens still stored. KEP 2799 cleans this up, ending auto-generation of old tokens. This PR implements a purge of of the old tokens if enabled using the LegacyServiceAccountTokenCleanUp feature gate. By 1.30 or so, expect it to be on by default.
