I'm still trying to wrap my head around the security model here.  The
onboarding wizard makes it pretty easy to get started, but the UI
afterwards has a lot of complexity for managing fine grained permissions.
As I understand it, I made a "numba" project with my Microsoft account, but
I can add other Microsoft accounts to the project and give them varying
access to administer the project.  None of these user accounts or
permissions connect directly to Github accounts, so that is annoying if you
have a large core dev team you want to give permission to manage builds.
They will all need Microsoft accounts, and you will have to grant them
admin access to the project.  (Still trying to figure out how to do that
for Numba...)

Azure Pipeline's connection to Github itself (to post CI status under PRs,
etc) can be done either by granting permission via a Github user's account,
or by installing it as an "app" in the Github organization, which is the
route I opted for.
