Transfer issues between repositories as a non-admin member

I would like to express my appreciation for the new issue transfer feature ([1][2], [3]).


According to [3] a project member has to be an administrator of both repositories involved in the issue transfer.


This is a problem for the Apache Cordova project as discussed in [4].


I would like to request a smooth way for a non-admin member to use this kind of a feature on GitHub.


I completely understand that there is a GitHub issue mover bot ([5]) that could act as a workaround, would like to see the more seamless solution if possible.


In case this issue is on the wrong board I would appreciate some direction which board I should post this request on.


Thanks to GitHub in advance for your consideration.

Re: Transfer issues between repositories as a non-admin member

Now I have the same issue:
I am a committer of apache dubbo ,  so I have write  permissions of the two repositories: [1] and [2] ,
but not admin permissions , so I can't transfer a issue between them . [1] [2]


I think the apache projects using github all have this issue.
