Hi Brian and Ben,

Sorry I missed the original thread.  Given that the end of the year is 
around the corner, most of the Barbican team is out on PTO and we 
haven't had a chance to discuss this in our weekly meeting.

That said, I doubt anyone would object to moving cursive into the 
openstack namespace.

I personally do not mind the Oslo team taking over maintenace, and I am 
also willing to help review patches if the Oslo team would like to 
co-own this library just like we currently do for Castellan.
