I agree... currently we only check that the program is fine with adding
that new repository (by checking with the PTL :P) and that the project
intent seems to fit in the program mission scope. Extra basic due
diligence can't hurt, and we could turn that into a new requirements list.

Would you be interested in proposing a basic "new projects in existing
program requirements" list as a governance repo change ? Then we could
iterate on it.
