Automatically assign user set as admin for a new forum as a key master

Description

I created a new forum for Hindi at hi.wordpress.org/support after the official request (https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/2016/11/21/want-to-make-a-request/) following the instructions for adding a new global site.

The admin email added was the email of the person requesting the forum, who would be the future key master.

The expected behavior was then for that user to be automatically assigned as key master of the new forum. That didn't happen, I had to manually go and change the user role on the site.

Can I request that the admin for a new international forum is automatically assigned as a key master as the new forum is created?

The bbPress keymaster role is only ever automatically assigned once to the admin user when activating the bbPress.

All subsequent bbPress keymasters need to have their role added manually by another keymaster or site admin.

The Polyglots handbook already has this documented as part of the Creating a new locale forum section.

Yep, we should improve this flow.

@ocean90 what's involved in changing this behaviour?
