There is a certain level of trust and responsibility required for the
Owners group though: They can add/remove other Owners, and they can
add/remove Repositories. My reasoning is that we have a "Members" team that
has read/write access to all repositories (that doesn't happen
automatically unfortunately) and most people will be there.

All the repos will be public anyway, so membership in the organization is
not necessary for contributions (pull requests work too). But it can be
nice to say "Member of and contributor to the Chicago.PM Github

Hmmmmm, I already kinda regret the previous email. Who am I to decide who
is an owner? Hmmmm. Oh well, we'll get there when we get there.
