Hello, is there any way or is there planned to be any way to create repositories off of template repositories that I don’t have membership too?
As in, if there’s an organization that created a starter repository and has made it both public and a template, can someone unaffiliated with that organization create a repo from that template?
I’m working on a feature that allows users to fork a starter project, all through the GitHub api, that we provide and that they can then build off of. But because they’re not going to want to merge their fork back into our starter, a fork doesn’t really make sense. But being able to provide a starter that’s a template repository that they can use to create a new repo would be ideal. The problem is they won’t be part of our organization so it won’t work.
I know they could just clone the repo but the idea is that we manage creating the repo for them, through the GitHub api, to make it a bit easier.
