Peng Tao and I started working on this less than one hours ago, we've
commented on all the PRs that will need to be re-opened against `main`
or `stable-2.0` about the disruption, we've added `do-not-merge` and
`needs-branch-adjustment` labels on them, and we'll comment on them
again once this switch is over. You also will receive another email
from me once we're done with the switch.

Sorry for the disruption and thanks for understanding the situation!
