Sorry, yes I saw it, but then later mis-remembered it. :(

So there's two things to do, in this order:

1) do a proper transfer of the Airship repos
2) Archive any other repos on github that are no longer in the openstack

Has the airship team been working with the infra team on getting
the transfer done? I would think that could be done quickly, and then
we can proceed with archiving the others.
