Quite the contrary, oslo.db just deprecated migrate support:

This came up in the keystone meeting a few weeks ago because the 
deprecation broke their test jobs. Unfortunately, from looking at other 
projects' migration patches it doesn't appear to be trivial to move to 

Based on the commit message, I think the deprecation was more intended 
to prod users of migrate to move off it as opposed to start a ticking 
clock for its removal, but we should have a discussion about how exactly 
projects should proceed. Maybe a pop-up team that could write docs and 
provide a point of contact for people with questions?
