Managing repository settings
Repository administrators and organization owners can change several settings, including the names and ownership of a repository and the public or private visibility of a repository. They can also delete a repository.
Setting repository visibility
You can choose who can view your repository.
Classifying your repository with topics
To help other people find and contribute to your project, you can add topics to your repository related to your project's intended purpose, subject area, affinity groups, or other important qualities.
Customizing how changed files appear on GitHub
To keep certain files from displaying in diffs by default, or counting toward the repository language, you can mark them with the
linguist-generated attribute in a .gitattributes file.
Allowing people to fork a private repository owned by your organization
Organization owners and people with admin permissions for a repository can allow or prevent the forking of a specific private repository owned by your organization.
Enabling anonymous Git read access for a repository
As a repository administrator, you can enable or disable anonymous Git read access for public repositories that meet certain requirements.
Renaming a repository
You can rename a repository if you're either an organization owner or have admin permissions for the repository.
Transferring a repository
You can transfer repositories to other users or organization accounts.
Deleting a repository
You can delete any repository or fork if you're either an organization owner or have admin permissions for the repository or fork. Deleting a forked repository does not delete the upstream repository.
