Creating a team
You can create independent or nested teams to manage repository permissions and mentions for groups of people.
Only organization owners and maintainers of a parent team can create a new child team under a parent. Owners can also restrict creation permissions for all teams in an organization. For more information, see "Setting team creation permissions in your organization."
You can use team synchronization to automatically add and remove team members in an organization through an identity provider. For more information, see "Synchronizing teams between your identity provider and GitHub."
