Over the summer, GitHub Classroom grew a new feature: specifying submission deadlines! But there’s a curious bit of text that goes with it:
After the deadline, GitHub Classroom will save the latest commit from each repo as a submission. Submission commits are viewable on the assignment page.
I’d love if somebody could clarify what happens here. If I read this right, at the stroke of midnight all of my students’ repos will be cloned? Or just saved elsewhere? If a student keeps pushing changes after the deadline, will they get some indication the deadline has passed?
Next week is the first week of the semester, so I’d really like to know how this feature works.
