Can the Castellan team be broken out into a new project under the big tent
rather than having to go under oslo? Oslo as a catch-all made more sense
before the big tent. Also, I always thought part of the deal of moving
under oslo is that oslo core reviewers have +2 authority on the repos, but
it doesn't look like that's part of the proposal here which was a rename
and now is changing launchpad to make Castellan a subproject under oslo
(along with some documentation changes).
