How to clone your own GitHub repository (without a GitHub account)
Reuters A source close to GitHub has shared details of the process for creating a clone of GitHub’s repository.
The method will not work if you don’t have an account.
The source, who wished to remain anonymous, said the process of creating a Git clone is identical to the process a person would take to clone an existing GitHub repository.
It’s a common method to clone GitHub repositories to work on a remote project.
GitHub said the method will work if users don’t want to be prompted for an account, but it won’t work if the user doesn’t have one.
Github said it will provide a guide to the cloning process for anyone who wants to use it.
Gizmodo is not naming the person behind the new clone because the process has been hidden from GitHub.
GitHub says it is working to ensure the method is easy to use.
The person behind it said the person had access to the account that is used to clone a GitHub repository and had been working on it for the last week or so.
Greta Van Susteren, the CEO of the nonprofit organization the nonprofit GitHub, confirmed to Gizmodotan that the clone was a clone.
“GitLab is working with GitHub to address the issue of people being able to clone repositories by email and not having to log into their GitHub account,” she wrote in an email to GigaOm.
“Gitlab is working on a new, more robust and easy to understand method for this process, but as of today, the GitHub team has not been able to share it with the public.”
Github said it has had to do additional testing on the process to ensure it’s not a bot.
