The new temporary interaction limits in repo settings

Introducing temporary interaction limits

When issue or pull request discussions get heated, sometimes a solution can’t be reached until everyone has had time to cool down. Now, with interaction limits, maintainers can temporarily limit who can comment, create pull requests, and open issues among existing users, collaborators, and prior contributors. After 24 hours, limits expire and allow users to go back to participating in the conversation.

You’ll find interaction limits when you click on the Settings tab in any repository you own.

This is just one tool your team can use to promote healthy, level-headed collaboration.
