Assuming Matt is right and org-to-org transfer does not generate manual 
confirmation if they have a shared owner, that's definitely a possibility.

I prefer openstack-archive because openstack-attic actually exists on 
opendev so having it in two places but containing different things is 
likely to be confusing. I'd rather transfer openstack-attic to 
openstack-archive as well.
