I just discovered the option of private repositories in the announcement. Just like stated, I use them to ‘apply for a job’. That’s even the only usage I make of them, besides experimenting with Git and Github.
So, I would like to selectively give access to people, like by supplying an URL with a key. As I know from photo albums on the web. This should be ready only, which may include copying or cloning, preferably copying.
So that is my request, which seems pretty obvious to me.
By the way, I do not consider this ‘solved’. That is more of an euphemism to get rid of the question.
