Creating a repository on GitHub
After you create your repository on GitHub AE, you can customize its settings and content.
A repository is like a folder for your project. Your project's repository contains all of your project's files and stores each file's revision history. You can also 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.
