I tried to create a fork of Marlin Marlin Firmware 1.1.8, when I click fork it does not ask me what version I want to fork. It just assumes I want 1.1.9, which they label as 1.1.x. I specifically want 1.1.8.
So I downloaded the zip of 1.1.8. Then I dragged and dropped it into github desktop and created a repository. So now it Github desktop, I have a 1.1.8 repository, but I do not believe it is a fork. I made it a private repository.
My intention is to take 1.1.8 and repurpose this for a different project, my changes will not be wanted by the Marlin community and I have no intention of pushing them. I also have no intention of pulling any further of their changes.
Can you tell me easily how to create a 1.1.8 fork. I would like it private until it works, and then I would make it public. But I probably will not take any code in. My intention is just to publish and make available to anyone who wants it, but I will not accept any changes.
