[Infrastructure] GitHub Migration update

Following our call today, I think all of the non-destructive modifications
are complete.


   - https://github.com/cabforum/archive now exists as an archive of past
   activity. Jos has one pending change (
   https://github.com/cabforum/archive/pull/1 ) and then we can go ahead
   and close that out
   - https://github.com/cabforum/forum exists and contains the Bylaws and
   the charters. Per our conversation on Slack and the WebEx, as the charters
   are Forum-wide, they were moved here
   - https://github.com/cabforum/code-signing contains the CSC CWG work
   (which was a transcribed copy of the BRs from a while ago). This likely
   needs a revamp/attention
   - https://github.com/cabforum/smime exists, but contains nothing, as the
   SMC CWG has not adopted any documents yet
   - https://github.com/cabforum/servercert - renamed from
   https://github.com/cabforum/documents (and all links updated)
   - https://github.com/cabforum/servercert/pull/227 exists to remove the
      files now moved away, and update the build infrastructure accordingly

Can folks please check and make sure it looks good?

Next Steps

   - Remove the old branches from cabforum/servercert
   - Merge the PRs for archive/ and servercert/
   - Move the "Infrastructure" project board from servercert to forum
      - While we can transfer issues between projects and repositories, we
      can't easily move the Project itself over.
      - Suggestion: Convert the tasks to issues (which we'd discussed
      previously), move the issues to cabforum/forum, and then re-create the
      Project board
      - *Owner: Jos: *Are you good doing this?
   - Work through the issues list to move issues as appropriate (e.g.
   infrastructure WG issues -> forum)
      - *Owner*: I will start this, since I need to do it already for the
      SC31/SC35 changes, based on how they were merged in.
   - A "tools" repository is not yet created
      - I'm trying to work out creating a custom GitHub Action (that would
      live in a cabforum/ repository) that can be 'easily' integrated into our
      other repositories as a "Build with Pandoc and attach pretty artifacts".
      This is to allow a lot of the common pieces, like the style and
      to be managed centrally, as well as support the "Build on pull request"
      flow we talked about.
      - The goal is to make it entirely self-contained, as it (briefly)
      once was, so folks can easily build locally (e.g. via Docker) or
by simply
      editing through GitHub (including in their own forks/repositories), and
      getting pretty things produced.
      - *Owner*: I'm working on this, but I'm not sure it will happen
      within the next 3 weeks. That "should" be fine though?
   - Permissions cleanup and management
      - This is about making sure each CWG can independently manage their
      documents, and setting up good defaults to help those teams succeed
      - Concretely:
         - *Done:* Ensure that merge commits are disabled; only
         Squash-and-Merge is allowed.
         - Setting up a "Team" per CWG with that CWGs members, to ensure
         contributions are from Members of that CWG
         - Setting up a "Team" per CWG for that CWG's Chair/Vice-Chair
         - Adding Repository Protection for the "main" branch of each
         repository to ensure that the CWG Chair/Vice-Chair Team have
approved a
         Pull Request before Merging
