The trick is that transfer is (if documentation is to be trusted) an 
async process involving the new owner clicking a link in an email to 
accept the transferred repository. Since this has to be done for 1,130 
repositories (not even counting openstack-dev and openstack-attic), I 
don't think that would be practical...
