For those who cannot post professional code publically, temporary read-only access to private repos would be a perfect way to share code during the job search process.

Perhaps I am just missing another way to achieve this?
also it would help to share code with Clients how have not paid their bill yet - Don't want THEM cloning and owning. wowie zowie.
