Github Protected Branches Issue

We have had duplicate issues #14 and #12 raised on Github. Collaborators not a part of the organizations are not allowed to create PR requests or push to the repository. Github Protected Branches for organizations is related to the problem. This post is not about discussing protected branches at length, rather a contributing.md guide for Twitivity‘s collaborators.

GitHub’s default settings are there for protective measures. Repository maintainers can easily override the defaults as they see fit. The organization’s repositories have separate protected branch settings, do verify this because there could be other ways to do this that affect all repos in an organization.

View Of the Protected Branch Page.

Repository Settings then Branches will land you the above page.
I’m sure the rest is readily apparent by now. You want these sets of settings checked out before an outside collaborator commits any changes.
