Use organization level templates #19529
Requirements for Contributing Documentation
Description of the Change
Remove the local templates for issues and pull requests in favor of the organization wide ones, meaning we only need to update those for changes. Currently these templates are essentially identical so no changes should be visible in the process.
Since that is now a legacy functionality I don't think this is too big of a change, especially since we would automatically close such an issue anyway for failing to follow the template.

@jasonrudolph It looks like you were the one who originally created those links, assuming this is a direction we want to go with can you update those to point to the organization level templates? Since those files already exist this can be done at any time.

@Arcanemagus: As far as I can tell, you can't change the target URL for a bit.ly link, so I think we'll have to create new bit.ly links. I've included some suggested edits below to point to new bit.ly links for the pull request templates in the organization-level repo.
