Migrating supporting repositories to CCG?

Hey CCG Chairs (and Emeritus Chairs),

This question came up during a VC API telecon:

Can Github repositories that support an existing CCG work item be moved to CCG
automatically, or does every Github repository need to go through the work
item process?

For example, if "Work Item X" is adopted as a CCG work item, then we create a
"Work Item X Use Cases", "Work Item X Test Suite", or "Work Item X Developer
Guide" in personal/corporate Github repositories... do those latter three
items need to go through the work item adoption process, or can the supporting
items just be moved over to CCG as long as the author and Work Item Group
agree to move those things over?

This is of immediate relevance to the VC API group as we have the following
test suite repositories that we expect to contribute to the CCG over the next
couple of months:

* Implementations (VC API implementer configurations and
  authz Github secrets)
* Assertion libraries (e.g., test VC, Data Integrity, and
  JWT well-formed-ness (not crypto) checking)
* Basic VC Issuer API
* Basic VC Verifier API
* Cryptosuites (Ed25519, NIST ECDSA, Koblitz ECDSA, VC-
  JWT, BBS+, etc.)
* Basic Presentation Exchange
* Credential Refresh 2021
* Industry Vertical VCs (Student ID, Permanent Resident
  Card, Skill, Transcript, etc.)

Moving every single one of those things through the CCG work item process
feels like overkill if folks in the VC API group are already doing the work as
a part of the VC API testing initiative.

The question to the Chairs are, can we just move those test suites into CCG,
or do we need to move every single one of those things through the CCG work
item process?
