I am taking on the task in the Oslo Logging/Context projects to ensure
project replaces a deprecated use of tenant.

This includes the end user/operator view of logging configuration options
[1] replacing tenant with project, and RequestContext used across most
projects that has an inconsistent mixture of terms.
