GitHub repository excellence

There are many configurations in GitHub repositories that can promote collaboration. These settings can reduce the need to fear failure and make the review process more standardized. We will not cover all of them here, but some of the major ones are particularly important.

Repository rules – Streamlining workflow and ensuring code quality

Branch rules are important for managing a repository in a way that strikes a balance between security and collaboration. While GitHub allows setting permissions for the repository or specific functions, it does not offer code-based permissions. Relying solely on write permissions can restrict participation and hinder open communication. Branch rules allow repository administrators to enforce specific policies on branches, particularly critical ones such as the main or master branches. These policies include requirements for pull request reviews, status checks, and restrictions on who can push to the branch...
