[openstack-dev] Retirement of openstack/cloud-init repository

I'd like to start the retirement (well actually it's more of shifting)
of the openstack/cloud-init repository to its new location that
*finally* removes the old bzr version of itself.
The long story is that the cloud-init folks (myself included) moved the
bzr repository to openstack/cloud-init and cloud-init 2.0 work was
started there while 0.7.x work was still done in bzr.
The 0.7.x branches of openstack/cloud-init then tried to stay up with
the 0.7.x work but constantly feel behind, and 2.0 work has somewhat
slowed down (not entirely stalled just yet) so in order to help out the
whole thing here the canonical folks (mainly scott and friends) have
finally moved the old bzr repository off of bzr and now it's connected
into the launchpad git system and all history has been moved there and
such (the 2.0 branch from openstack/cloud-init is also mirrored there)
so at this point there isn't a need to have git and bzr when now one
location (and one location that can please all the folks) exists.
So sometime next week I'm going to start the move of the
openstack/cloud-init (which is outdated) to the attic and direct new
people to the new location (or perhaps we can have infra just point to
that in some kind of repo notes?).
Anyways, TLDR; git at launchpad for cloud-init, no more bzr or need to
have out of sync ~sort of~ mirror in openstack, win!
