This should be fixed with our next push, sorry about that! When you import a GitHub repo to your Careers profile, we try to make sure that you actually contributed to it by retrieving commits you authored. If the number of commits is too high, the GitHub API will paginate the response, including only a small number of commits per page. When trying to fetch ...

Generally, Stack Overflow is fine, but as random pointed out in his comment, it depends what is being asked: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/github GitHub is certainly a tool commonly used by programmers, per the FAQ. I like to think one of the best ways to decide what to ask is to first observe what is being asked and answered well by the ...

The base code is not available publicly and you cannot contribute to it as a user. We use GitHub Enterprise hosted privately on internal servers, not the publicly accessible GitHub service. We don't allow generic contributors, only employees. Getting more people involved involves hiring more people.

No, such things should not exist in StackOverflow IMO. In Stack Overflow and other Stack Exchange sites, it is important to have messages readable and simple. Adding salute or greetings like Hello guys or Thanks for your help is strongly discouraged since they have no positive effect on making a post more readable or understandable. A question or an ...

see stackexchange as a social network of extraordinary and genius peoplen You are wrong. Stack Exchange is a network of Q/A sites, not a social network. Hence, emoji are not supported since it ads fluff to posts and that defeats the purpose of the sites: clear-cut questions and answers.

As of 2013-10-02, the redirects for issues and pull requests in the old Bootstrap repository appear to be functioning, so no edits are necessary. Generally, there's supposed to be a redirect from the old GitHub repository to the new one in cases like this. This wasn't working after Bootstrap's transition to its new organisation, so someone opened a relevant ...

It seems status-completed, answer from Geoff Dalgas: The GitHub PR was finally approved and merged: https://stackoverflow.blog/2019/11/11/announcing-support-for-github-authentication-in-stack-overflow/

The solution is to set up a personal page, which utilizes "openid.delegate" to forward to the "openid.server". This is done in the HEAD section of that page by using "meta" and "link" tags. For inspiration: https://stackoverflow.com/a/1223529 For testing use this: http://test-id.org/OP/Sreg.aspx

There's a dedicated Stack Exchange site for Open Source. According to their Help Center, questions about how communities collaborate together to produce, distribute, market and sometimes monetize these projects are on-topic, and I think your question might fit under this umbrella.

You need to go to that organization's "Members" page and make your profile in that page public. steps: Go to Organization's github page Click on "Members" on the right side of the page (it's above the avatars) The URL would be: https://github.com/orgs/<orgname>/members And then you'll a listing of members with the status of their profile. Click "...

This is definitely possible... I login to SO.com, etc. using my openid of mralexgray.github.com, which is my gh-pages URL. I forget how I set this up... at some point in the distant past... but I will research it and update this answer.

Stack Overflow is better suited for practical programming questions about specific issues. Try CodeReview.StackExchange.com for code reviews. Be sure to read their FAQ though. For one, I think it's preferred or even required to put your code (the relevant bits) in the question to make it stand on itself, as well as to prevent link rot. To quote the relevant ...

And it turns out the GitHub guys concur with Jeff! From the announcement where they shut down their Google Groups group: After three glorious years, we're shutting down this Google Group next Monday, May 9th, 2011. You can always contact Official GitHub Support by emailing sup...@github.com or visiting https://github.com/contact As for ...

If you're a public member of a Github organization, you can add projects from it. But if your membership of the organization is not public, we won't be able to see that you're a member. You can change your visibility from the organization admin page on Github.

It's weird how this hasn't been implemented yet, seen as even XKCD comics are oneboxed. Github is an important place; at least more important than XKCD (yeah... I just said that ;). Anyway, I've made a userscript to onebox links to Github on the client side; it will work for repos, issues, and pull requests. You can install it from Github or view the ...

We now deal with this gracefully but only for GitHub repos. They're the only ones that have a unique identifier other than the URL. This will work immediately with new repos that you subsequently rename and will eventually be propagated across older ones too, although that will take upto two weeks to complete (GitHub throttles requests so we can't do it any ...

We've now added this. On your profile, under the "Open Source" section, go to add or update GitHub and you'll see a new section at the end of your repository list: Enter the URL of the repo and click "add". Then we'll pull up the repo details and you can add it to your profile. But wait! What's to stop you just going in and adding somebody else's GitHub ...

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

File an issue with the project, as this is outside the realm of what Stack Overflow is for -- no such mechanism exists for something like what you are suggesting. You might place that it's a bug with the library, providing references (e.g. GitHub issue) as an answer.

I have added several GitHub projects to my Careers profile, but 2 of them (1, 2) are not displayed on the public profile. Looks like the Waiting for data from GitHub... is over as I can see both of your GitHub repos i.e. XamlAnimatedGif and WpfAnimatedGif have been successfully added to your SO Careers profile. Here is the screenshot: The Waiting ...

As I said, the most wanted feature is the keyboard shortcuts. I wrote a userscript tested both on firefox 43.0.1 (need greasemonkey addon) and chromium Version 47.0.2526.106 (need tampermonkey addon). Enabled sites : https://*.slack.com/* https://github.com/* https://gist.github.com/* Enabled keyboard shortcuts : ctrl+b : bold ctrl+i : emphasis ctrl+k : ...

I don't think this is really at all possible. I guess you could do a user script to override Github's editor with PageDown... but our markdown flavor isn't entirely compatible with Github's markdown, so you'd be shooting yourself in the foot if you did so. It's even worse for Slack: We're aware that some users would like to see enhanced Markdown options, ...

The appropriate site to ask this might be SE Software Recommendations. Be sure to fulfill at least these policies when asking a question there (from the help center): Good software recommendation requests have two components: A purpose — a task to accomplish, a user story Some objective requirements — a minimum set of features

This is fixed. The github icon on the logins page is now shown, with all of its splendor.

Your boss made a pretty good suggestion there. The ideal way of fixing a bug in a public project is to send a patch yourself, or – in GitHub terms – forking the repo, and sending a pull request. If you cannot fix the bug yourself, you'd obviously have to file a bug report as Qantas 94 Heavy suggested. Stack Overflow itself is not the proper place to post a ...

It looks like we've been hitting some GitHub API throttling over the last week, as some people have imported large numbers of repos onto their profiles. Things should be back to normal soon, so missing repos should be picked up some time in the next day or so. In the meantime, I've gone ahead and manually approved that project on your profile so you can see ...

It's worth noting that they do support OAuth3 it looks like...

I was unable to repro this behavior. I cloned your repos with Russian descriptions on both Github and Google Code and was able to import them both with the correct Russian text. Can you give me more detail on how you imported the projects? It's possible I was doing something differently than you were. It would also help to know which browser you were ...
