At that point the Oslo liaisons should start planning patches to change imports in their projects from "oslo.foo" to “oslo_foo". The old imports should still work for now, but new features will not be added to the old namespace, so over time it will be necessary to make the changes anyway. We are likely to remove the old namespace package completely during the next release cycle, but that hasn't been decided.

Making the switch probably requires us to add some hacking rule that 
would forbid old namespace based imports, right? Do we by chance have 
such a rule implemented anywhere?
