Feature request: create new codespace without fork

  1. go to a repository’s homepage on the GitHub web UI
  2. click the green code button
  3. click “Open with Codespaces”
  4. now I have to fork the repository

forking really isn’t a problem but I try not to fork projects unless I’m going to be directly contributing to it. sometimes I just want to launch an environment for the project so I can play around with it, knowing I won’t open a PR to upstream (e.g., printing tensor shapes)

Thanks for this suggestion and checking out Codespaces! We’re still iterating on our flows for getting started and definitely think it’s a good idea. We’ll circle back when we have any updates.
