Yes, the biggest risk is if one of the admins is a regular user of
GitHub.  If they don't have their own GitHub-forks of the OpenStack
repos, and they only ever clone their local copies from OpenDev (or,
they are not developers at all), then I think the risk of accidents on a
personal account is fairly low.
