You can pin repositories to your profile so that other people can easily see repositories you own or have contributed to. These pinned repositories include important information about the repository, like a summary of the work being done, the number of stars the repository has received, and the main programming language used in the repository. Once you pin repositories to your profile, the "Pinned repositories" section replaces the "Popular repositories" section on your profile.
