Repository access management beta

Repository administrators have a range of responsibilities including triaging issues, reviewing pull requests and, of course, developing code. One of the main duties of an administrator is managing repository access for organization members, outside collaborators, and teams. To make this easier, we’ve redesigned the access settings page to help administrators better understand who has access to their repository and what level of access they have.

To use the new experience, log in to a repository where you have admin privileges, click on the Settings tab and then click Manage access in the left side bar. We can’t wait to learn how this feature helps you and your workflow! To provide feedback, click the feedback link in the top right corner of the page.
