After you create your repository on GitHub Enterprise, 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 create a new repository on your personal account or any organization where you have sufficient permissions.
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.
You can use a CODEOWNERS file to define individuals or teams that are responsible for code in a repository.
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.
GitHub Enterprise does not provide issues-only access permissions, but you can accomplish this using a second repository which contains only the issues.
Certain types of resources can be quite large, requiring excessive processing on GitHub Enterprise. Because of this, limits are set to ensure requests complete in a reasonable amount of time.
To duplicate a repository without forking it, you can run a special clone command, then mirror-push to the new repository.
