What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

I am involved in a project on GitHub that is not mine. Nevertheless, my team added me to the project as author.

On Careers 2.0, I am only able to add project I created (so within my "namespace"), or project of other I forked.

I don't know how far you track users and their project, but I think it could be fair to be able to link on a team project where the user is the author but not the owner.

Do you get an error message? Or what happens when you try to do this? –  Cody Gray Aug 11 '11 at 13:38
    
No it is just not in the list of "addable" project. –  M'vy Aug 11 '11 at 13:56
    
Can you send me a link to the project? We do support Github organizations. –  Matt Sherman Aug 11 '11 at 14:21
    
@Matt the project is here. github.com/prologin/prolojail But I'm not sure the account is an "organisation" account. Pretty much like StackExchange scripts of @Rebecca github.com/rchern/StackExchangeScripts . Multiple people are able to commit and push on the project, but @Rebecca owns the repository. –  M'vy Aug 11 '11 at 14:42

Thanks. The Github API (v2) is surprisingly roundabout for this sort of thing. We’ll investigate v3… –  Matt Sherman Aug 17 '11 at 17:37
    
It should even be possible to add projects where you don’t have any commit rights at all – you might have made substantial contributions anyway. Unfortunately, the manual adding mode does not help either. –  Adrian Lang Sep 20 '11 at 9:26

The short answer is that we haven't figured out a good way to do this with the GitHub API. It's a common request, and we'll announce if/when we figure it out.

can't one rely (at least in part) on the goodwill of people that will edit their resumé and let them manually add the appropriate repositories? –  rbrito Mar 27 '13 at 22:41

I had a similar problem and fixed it by making sure I was a public member of the organization. By default membership is private.
