Would it be simpler in this case though. We would just:

1. Stop mirroring retired repos from our gitea to GitHub
2. Manually do a repo transfer from openstack/ to openstack-attic/ on GitHub
3. Set the openstack-attic/repo to Archived

Then anyone that still tries to clone from the old openstack namespaces
GitHub location will still get the files, but from that point on we
don't need to worry about mirroring or ongoing maintenance. It's
basically just a historical record. And if someone wants to for whatever
reason, they can fork that repo and do whatever they want to do with it.
