Yeah, that is where the confusion was and we did not complete the retirement during namespace
change time. Sorry about that and that is why we end up a situation like this.

Now TC is finishing all the un-completed retirements for many projects/repo, you can find all the
list in below etherpad
- https://etherpad.opendev.org/p/tc-retirement-cleanup

And below repos are left with code under 'openstack/' namespace which was main confusion.
"dragonflow  networking-l2gw networking-l2gw-tempest-plugin networking-onos
 openstack-ux python-dracclient solum-infra-guestagent transparency-policy "

We are doing proper retirement for all those repos now.

Also if there is active team for any of these repo and they create the new repo location under x/ or any other
namespace in opendev then TC can update the README.rst to point to new location.

I agree this is not the best way but we do not have any other option than taking this step.
