Hello Oslo Team,

Nova, Glance, and Cinder all make use of the 'cursive' library for 
image-signature-validation.  The library is currently in the 'x' 
namespace: https://opendev.org/x/cursive

The current cursive-core team entirely consists of members of the Johns 
Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, which ended its 
involvement with OpenStack in July 2018 [0].

This leaves us in a position where three of the major openstack projects 
depend on a library to which no one currently around can approve code 

I'd like to propose that the cursive library be moved back to the 
'openstack' namespace and be put under Oslo governance with the 
consuming teams sharing the maintenance of the library.  I don't think 
this will make much new work for the Oslo team--the library has been 
very stable and hasn't changed in over 2 years--but it will ensure that 
should any bugfixes be required, there will be oslo team members who can 
approve the patches.

Thanks for thinking this over,
