Yes, looks like Travis needs to create the new repository and add at least
one core team member, who can then add others. I'd suggest
numpy-extension-dtypes for the repository name, Tom is on github as
Travis, it might be a good idea to add one more person with ownership
permissions as a backup if that is possible.
