How can I remove "Packages" and "Releases" from my project's front page?

On my project’s page on GitHub, on the right-hand side, just below the license information, I see “Releases No releases published - Create a new release; Packages No packages published - Publish your first package”. I currently have no use for these features, and would like to turn them off just to reduce noise.

I am pretty sure I was asked about this recently, but at the time I accepted, and now I can find no place where I can disable these.

I think I received the question when I set up GitHub Actions for my project, but I also see these headlines on the pages of projects which don’t have any GitHub Actions.

Is there a way to turn these off? Where should I look?


click the gear button

then you’ll see this, uncheck them
