Feature Request: Sort Forks

A list of forks is great, but when there are 1000 forks and I’m trying to figure out which one is the most recently maintained, well, I have to click 1000 forks to find out that information.

Basic sorting of a list of forks should be implemented. Here is what I think is minimum:

  • Sort by most recently forked in either asc or desc
  • An filter option to quickly eliminate items from the list whose head commit is the same as the head commit of the base of the fork
  • Remember sorting preferences: my account should implicitly retain my last selected preference for fork sorting & filtering.

Here is a list of forks that entirely useless to me without a sorting option:
