There isn’t a method to send a repository owner a PM via GitHub. You can check to see if they have a public email address listed on their profile or you can open an issue on their repository.

Let us know if you have more questions.

For technical conversations, staying in the original issue is usually the best, so it is acceptable that there’s no way to DM someone.

However, when someone is misbehaving, doing things that are inappropriate per the Code of Conduct of the Project, it would be very useful to be able to tell them “off the record”. Discussions in public are not often the best ways to solve conflict. Maybe this kind of DM could be restricted to Repo owners or something, but still, something like that would be useful.
