We discussed this again in the Oslo meeting this week, and to share with 
the wider audience here's what I propose:

Since the team that initially proposed the feature and that we expected 
to help maintain it are no longer able to do so, and it's not clear to 
the Oslo team that there is sufficient demand for a rather complex 
feature like this, I suggest that we either WIP or abandon the current 
patch series. Gerrit never forgets, so if at some point there are 
contributors (new or old) who have a vested interest in the feature we 
can always resurrect it.

If you have any thoughts about this plan please let me know. Otherwise I 
will act on it sometime in the near-ish future.

In the meantime, if anyone is desperate for Oslo work to do here are a 
few things that have been lingering on my todo list:

* We have a unit test in oslo.utils (test_excutils) that is still using 
mox. That needs to be migrated to mock.
* oslo.cookiecutter has a number of things that are out of date (doc 
layout, lack of reno, coverage job). Since it's unlikely we've reached 
peak Oslo library we should update that so there aren't a bunch of 
post-creation changes needed like there were with oslo.upgradecheck (and 
I'm guessing oslo.limit).
* The config validator still needs support for dynamic groups, if 
oslo.config is your thing.
* There are 326 bugs open across Oslo projects. Help wanted. :-)
