Creating a repository on GitHub
After you create your repository on GitHub AE, you can customize its settings and content.
A repository contains all of your project's files and each file's revision history. You can discuss and manage your project's work within the repository.
About repository visibility→
You can restrict who has access to a repository by choosing a repository's visibility: private or internal.
Creating a new repository→
You can create a new repository on your personal account or any organization where you have sufficient permissions.
Creating a repository from a template→
You can generate a new repository with the same directory structure and files as an existing repository.
You can add a README file to your repository to tell other people why your project is useful, what they can do with your project, and how they can use it.
About code owners→
You can use a CODEOWNERS file to define individuals or teams that are responsible for code in a repository.
About repository languages→
The files and directories within a repository determine the languages that make up the repository. You can view a repository's languages to get a quick overview of the repository.
Creating a template repository→
You can make an existing repository a template, so you and others can generate new repositories with the same directory structure, branches, and files.
Creating an issues-only repository→
GitHub AE does not provide issues-only access permissions, but you can accomplish this using a second repository which contains only the issues.
Limits for viewing content and diffs in a repository→
Certain types of resources can be quite large, requiring excessive processing on GitHub AE. Because of this, limits are set to ensure requests complete in a reasonable amount of time.
Duplicating a repository→
To duplicate a repository without forking it, you can run a special clone command, then mirror-push to the new repository.
