Update - Microsoft response

This is a bot that is supposed to configure the right license when employees start a new repo in the Microsoft GitHub org. It seems the automation is also triggered when Repos are forked into the Microsoft GitHub org which isn’t correct behavior.

This isn’t a deliberate action. If it were plenty of employees (myself included) would be outraged. I assume it’s a bug in the bot - an edge case that was not considered. It is very rare to fork something into the Microsoft GitHub org after all.

I’ll pass it along to some people I know.
