The project strucutre seems completely the wrong way round. Projects live independently of repos, but a project usually has more than one repo. E.g. a project to build a new e-commerce platform will have a "core" repo, a "backofice" repo, a "web" repo, etc. There may be 10 or more, but usualy 2-6 in our cases.
Github, for some unknown reason, has the relatioship back to front. A repo doesnt have a project - a project has a repo!
I see that github has added "linking" up to 5 repos to a project. But this seems like an ineffective attempt to fix it:
So to sumarise:
