It was developed similarly to official OpenStack projects and (along
with hundreds of other non-OpenStack projects) was hosted within the
"openstack/" Git namespace in our Gerrit because we moved all
projects into that namespace around the same time we ceased keeping
a separate "stackforge/" namespace, but cursive was never officially
under OpenStack governance.

The change you mention is the result of the OpenStack TC choosing to
evict non-OpenStack projects from that namespace during the big
OpenDev reorganization, and not an indication that it was actually
governed by OpenStack. If it were previously a deliverable of some
official team, it would be listed in the reference/legacy.yaml file
in the governance repository, but I've also double-checked the
entire Git history for openstack/governance and see no evidence that
it was ever under governance and somehow missed having its removal
recorded there.
