A new GitHub organization for web-platform-tests

Hi web-platform-test pioneers!

PLH and I are trying to figure out a way to improve the management and
handling of the WPT project on GitHub and Travis. As a consequence, I've
been looking at a transition plan to move the web-platform-tests repo and
related repos (at least wptdashboard and wpt-pullresults) to a separate
GitHub organization. This was occasioned by the Travis capacity problems
we're having (we represent around 55% of the w3c jobs on Travis in 2018)
and ensuring that the people most involved with wpt infra can actually fix
that, but there will be no doubt be more things like this as WPT as a
project becomes more and more critical to everyone's workflows. PLH has
been looking at increasing the Travis capacity in parallel.

The obvious choice for org name, "wpt", is not available, and attempts to
reach out to that user have failed. No other 3-character org names come to

So, I have created https://github.com/web-platform-tests as a possible
future home for WPT.

One option is that https://github.com/w3c/web-platform-tests would become

That makes the URLs quite a bit longer, so the other option would be to
also rename the repo to end up with

Obviously, there are many details to work out, but I'm interested to hear
concerns or excitement about a move, and which renaming seems less
disruptive overall.
