On the resource limits bit regarding forks, I haven't migrated a repo
build from the .org to .com site before, so in retrospect I dont
actually know if the build would automatically become enabled on the
.com site for your forks or if you need to enable it separately again.
That is, it may be a case of not-enabling it again, rather than
disabling it, in order to preserve the limited usage allowance should
you need it later (and/or not want to ask, or not be successful in
asking, for a sufficient amount of credits to leave it enabled all the
time on your forks).

Reading their details again, it also seems like perhaps OSX usage will
require a paid addon plan/credits, in which case those bits of the
builds will probably just need to be disabled (and/or moved to GitHub
Actions etc)
