I suspect this means "mid November 2021, but our spreadsheet date cell does not accept 'mid'". Uncertainty for long-run ISS schedule is +/- months.

Re: DoD's Space Test Program Cargo Dragon external payloads, SpX-24.

SFN, SpaceX ends launch hiatus with Cargo Dragon mission, Jeff Foust, dated August 29:
STP-H7 (was scheduled aboard SpX-23)
STP-H8 (originally scheduled aboard this flight)

Will any other potential payloads fit in the trunk, or is this all?

Unfortunately, the person maintaining the ELaNa launch page is asleep at the throttle (and there is no way a member of the public can wake them up, as NASA's phone book is not publicly available).

Any source for your information? Do you know which cubesats are flying?

No list of cubesats, unfortunately, but it is a comprehensive chart of all assigned ELaNa missions and # of cubesats for the next year as of August.

And a Falcon 9 from pad 39A will launch the CRS-24 Dragon resupply mission to the ISS in late December, in the middle of the night EST.
