You didn't have admin access, just write access. That's why you
couldn't transfer the repo in. I've just created a team for you called
'variadic_macro_data' with admin access, so you should be able to
transfer your repo into the organisation yourself, or you could
transfer it to me and I'll do it for you. Once this is done, I'll
downgrade the team to write access.

Yes, so it's not ready until it has been transferred.
