Make a fork of a private repo public?

Looking to see if it would be possible to make a fork of a private repo public.

Hi @ianisms,

Thank you for being here, an organization owner must allow forks of private repositories on the organization level before you can allow or disallow forks for a specific repository. For more information, see “Allowing people to fork private repositories in your organization.”

I hope this helps!

Thank you for your reply.  Not excatly what I am looking for.  What I’m looking to discover is specifcally if you can make a fork of a private repo public.  In other words, is it possible to keep the base repo private but allow a fork to go public?

Hmmm I understand, private forks can’t be made public. You could try to duplicate the repository.
