To transfer the repo you either need to transfer it to someone with
admin rights who can do it for you, or get someone to create a team
for you, and temporarily give the team admin rights so that you can
transfer the repo in. Do you want this to be maintained by the
preprocessor team or a new, separate team?
Once the repo is ready, the best way to add it to the super-project is
probably to create a pull request, or ask for help if you don't know
how. If you have a metadata file, I'll add the library to
libs/libraries.htm and libs/maintainers.txt from that.
