If you find that you need to create a new GitHub repository within the https://github.com/department-of-veterans-affairs/ GitHub org, please ensure you implement the following constraints:

Modifying repository access

When creating a new repository, the access level will be set to private automatically upon creation. Often times, repositories will need to be made public. To request a change to the repository access, submit a request through this Github Issue. An Admin will need to review the repository to make sure it contains no VA-specific sensitive data. For any questions, reach out in the #github-information slack channel.

If you have further questions about creating GitHub repositories please create a support request in the #vfs-platform-support channel or add a comment to this document.
