The reason is that it's actually difficult to get a view of all "oslo"
bugs due to Launchpad shortcomings (a project can only be in one project
group). So keeping them in a single "project" simplifies the work of
people that look after all of "Oslo".

This should be fixed in the future with a task tracker that handles
project groups sanely, and then there is no reason at all to use the
same project for different repositories.
