Renaming Kentor.AuthServices Nuget packages to Sustainsys.Saml2

Last year I left Kentor for new adventures as an independent consultant. I got the Kentor.AuthServices project with me, but of course need to rename it as it is not associated with Kentor any more. So how does one rename a library and nuget packges with 100k+ downloads and users all over the world? Simply releasing new versions under the new Sustainsys.Saml2 name will leave a lot of users stale on the last version with the old name. So what I did was to release dummy packages that kicks off the migration process.

The last release with functionality in the Kentor.AuthServices name was 0.22.0. I then did a huge renaming operation and published new packages named Sustainsys.Saml2 with version 0.23. Finally I published dummy Kentor.AuthServices 0.23 packages that brings in the Sustainsys.Saml2 0.23 packages and shows a readme with migration instructions.
