I think that would be a great idea, removing a /lot/ of confusion. Four 

1/ how much consent do we need from the unofficial project itself before 
renaming it to something that does not use the OpenStack name? A lot of 
them are abandoned so it might be hard to get all of them to agree 
before cleaning things up...

2/ what would, say, openstack/ailuropoda be renamed to ? 
https://opendev.org/ailuropoda ? or 
https://opendev.org/opendev/ailuropoda ? Something else ?

3/ What would happen to the automatic GitHub mirroring when we rename 
unofficial projects ? I suspect the mirroring would stop ? Would we 
automatically remove the no-longer-mirrored project from GitHub ?

4/ the reason why we created unofficial projects under openstack/ in the 
first place was that it was hard to rename projects afterwards when they 
actually became official. We have much less incoming openstack projects 
those days, so it might not be as much of a problem, but I was wondering 
if that was somehow simpler to do today ?
