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.

I’m not sure that’s something we need to enforce. Liaisons should be updating projects now as we release libraries, and then we’ll consider whether we can drop the namespace packages when we plan the next cycle.
