Heads up: Systemd v249 hits the archive

Hello folks!

We wanted to go with systemd v250 at first but as we do not have any 
upstream RC releases at this time we opted to merge systemd v249 for 
Ubuntu Jammy LTS, to stay on the safe side.

The merge is prepared and the blockers I found got resolved [0][1]. 
Pre-testing in Bileto [2] showed many false positives (that are already 
regressed in release, i.e. migration/0=FAIL) and a few actual issues, 
e.g. in netplan.io (flaky "bridges" test, I will handle that myself) and 
open-iscsi (resolved via [4]).

I'm planning to do this upload around Dec 7th and updated the release 
schedule accordingly [4]. Please let me know if there are any objections.
