I signed up for Github not knowing whether it would be useful to me, so I picked an unfortunately specific username (“Logoori”, which is the name of a language) that pertains to just one project (on that language). Now that I understand a bit more what one can do with Github, I’d like to be able to put multiple projects on Github. I can create a new repository under Logoori, for the Saami (language) repository, but /Logoori/Saami… is really misleading, because it implies that Saami is somehow hierarchically related to Logoori (it is not). I thought of creating separate accounts for each language project, but that’s blocked (using a single email address: I don’t want to proliferate email addresses).
I think that the way to conceptualize this is that I need a username and account that reflects the nature of all of these projects, such as “LanguageProjects”, then create repositories under that account. The horse is out of the barn, but maybe it’s not a huge problem: can a username be changed, so that all of these repositories will be under “LanguageProjects”? I prefer not to use my own name since I don;t intend to be the only one contributing to these reopsitories. If not, how should I be conceptualizing usernames, accounts, and repositories on Github? Hope you understand what I’m lookng for… mostly policy, and a bit of tech.
