For Andrew, it would have been a real problem, so IMO it's better
to be prepared for it and let potential new contributors know that
we can help resolve the issue.

Otherwise, people who potentially have a problem wouldn't even
consider contributing via the new Github workflow, which can't
really be in our interest.

The problem can hardly be unique to Python, can it? Thousands of well-known open source projects are now on GitHub. Also note Alex's comment that it has literally never come up for Django (which IMO has a healthier ration of contributors than core Python).
