This is basically what openstack-attic was. It would be nicer for anyone
who has cloned these repos to move them there instead of deleting. It
does still leave a bunch of essentially dead repos lying around though,
so I'm not sure if that completely addresses the cleanup aspect of this
I'm also curious if all of the repos involved here are inactive, or if
there are still things in openstack-dev that were moved to the openstack
namespace but are still mirrored to github in the old org.
