Different from individual repositories, the owner of organization repositories are the owner team of this organization.
A team in an organization has unit permissions settings. It can have members and repositories scope. A team could access all the repositories in this organization or special repositories changed by the owner team. A team could also be allowed to create new repositories.
The owner team will be created when the organization created and the creator will become the first member of the owner team. Notice Gitea will not allow a people is a member of organization but not in any team. The owner team could not be deleted and only members of owner team could create a new team. Admin team could be created to manage some of repositories, members of admin team could do anything with these repositories. Generate team could be created by the owner team to do the permissions allowed operations.
