Deprecation schedule for old standard-evaluation dplyr verbs


I maintain an internal package that is was built using old-style dplyr standard-evaluation verbs (e.g., mutate_()). We’re expanding it now to access more data sources and anticipate it being the main way of accessing data for two years or so. My question is: When will old-stye verbs be removed from tidyverse packages? Should I refactor the package to use new tidy evaluation?

We don’t have a timeline, but I think if you are touching the package, it’d be a good idea to upgrade to tidyeval. It shouldn’t be too much work.
