We are using GitHub for our class (not GitHub Classroom) and I want to give students some starter code for a group project. I set up an organization to host our repos, so my plan was to create the template repo and then have them fork that into their own repo inside the organization… but this does not work (forks into the same org are not allowed). Tried creating the template repo in my account (outside the org) but then only one fork is allowed.
I guess it would be possible for students to fork the template repo into their own accounts outside the org, but that’s not what I want as they would be all dispersed instead of having them “grouped” inside the organization.
I want them to have their copies somehow linked to the template repo so they can sync if I change it.
Did I get something wrong? Ideas on how I could achieve this?
Thanks in advance,
