I hope you can help?
How can I contact the people who have stared or watched our repo?
Also, we want to now hide part of our code but keep some of it public along with the README.md, is this possible?
As far as we can tell, there are 2 solutions to us:
We create a new private repo and move the code there we wish to make private. But if we do that then how do we then remove and hide that code on our existing public repo? Even if we delete the code and check-in then it will still be visible in the history? Also, if we move the code to the private repo would the full history also be copied across?
We create a new public repo and move the code we want to keep public to it. Does the history copy across too? We then make the existing public repo private. Can we then setup a re-direct so when people try to access the old public repo we have now made private, they are instead re-directed to the new public repo.
Which of these options do you support?
Or is there a 3rd better option?
Also, it would be great to have the code we wish to remain public to be linked to the private repo because it is a project that is used in the private code and we do not wish to have to maintain two copies of the same project/code. I know you can have linked repos but not sure how to set that up?
Any help would be really appreciated.
