User accounts on GitHub work this way. The owner can add any number of
collaborators. Organization accounts work differently [1].
Repositories of an organization account don't have a particular owner.
Instead, repositories belongs to teams. Members of teams with admin
privileges can add members to their team, but they than have admin
privileges too.
We need to discuss whether this is what we want.
