Reusing student repositories across series of assignments

Hi. I’m going to be using GitHub Classroom for a team software engineering project, in which the students will “deliver” two milestones. My goal, then, would be for each team to have a repository snapshot that is submitted after each milestone. It seems that the assignment feature is made for this, but as far as I can tell, new repositories are created with each assignment. Is there any way to reuse the repositories (and teams) across assignments?

Thanks,

No.

As far as I know GH Classroom does not support the concept of assignment by milestone/release mode.
When in this situation I usually ask the students to reuse the repo of the previous assignment and to create a branch and a release with the name of the assignment.

Unfortunately, we loose the capability to go to the corresponding view of the student repo from the Classroom app.

Seems a nice idea to me to have this feature.
