Please see the attached screenshot from my GitHub Classroom page for an assignment that I just handed out this morning.
Notice how some of the students have zero commits? If I click there, I get exactly what GitHub normally shows when a repo is completely empty, i.e., the usual instructions for how to push content to the repo. This seems to have impacted exactly three out of 29 students who’ve done the process. (My full enrollment is roughly 170 right now, and I expect the bulk of the clones to be made in the next day or two.)
I’m using the standard GitHub Classroom process of uploading a repo and putting it in as “starter code” for an “individual assignment.”
My workaround, for now anyway, was to manually do a git push into those empty repos.
