I am one of the lead developers on a couple of packages on GitHub, but these are under GitHub organizations that I belong to rather than directly under my username. Is there an easy way for me to add these to my profile on Or is the only way to create a fork of those projects under my username on GitHub?

I've tried to add an organizational link but don't see any options on the GitHub import screen to add a reference. What should I be looking for? – Paul Alexander Jun 16 '11 at 22:07
Same here. All I see are the public repos attached to my account. – Dave Whittaker Oct 12 '11 at 15:44
@Dave +1 I have no such option either (and if I try to add them using the "other projects" link, it refuses and says to use the Github import instead [which makes sense]). – wildpeaks Nov 14 '11 at 9:48
Same here as well. I have a single, embryonic project, but it's a group project. I want to link it, but can't yet. Soon, please! – Uncle Mikey Nov 29 '11 at 17:46
Not there for me either! Can't be hard to implement... – jrtc27 Jan 14 '12 at 18:56
NOTE: You need to make sure you are a "publicized" member of the organization on GitHub. You are not a Public member by default, it seems. Then the repos appear and you can add them. Cheers – thaddeusmt Apr 19 '12 at 14:13
@thaddeusmt Correct. The Github API won’t tell us about non-publicized members. – Matt Sherman Apr 19 '12 at 23:59
@MattSherman Note there seems to be a bug where URLs with a trailing slash don't get accepted (for example, but if the trailing slash is eliminated, it works. – NYCdotNet Jun 21 '15 at 0:52
