Is NSA watching this list! :-) They’ve (kind of) posted an answer to the underlying question just today. See https://media.defense.gov/2021/Aug/04/2002821837/-1/-1/1/Quantum_FAQs_20210804.PDF
Q: Is NSA worried about the threat posed by a potential quantum computer because a CRQC [Cryptographically Relevant Quantum Computer] exists?
A: NSA does not know when or even if a quantum computer of sufficient size and power to exploit public key cryptography (a CRQC) will exist.
The whole thing is worth reading.
