Private Git Repositories

Private Git Repositories

The SCF used to facilitate private git repositories via shared filesystem spaces and UNIX permissions. We now recommend using more broadly supported services.

GitHub offers unlimited private repositories with up to three collaborators per repository for free.

If instructors want students to use as part of their coursework, students will need to have or create their own account.

GitHub@Berkeley is an on-premise, enterprise instance of the GitHub product that is managed by campus. You login with your CalNet ID, and must be a faculty, staff, or student. Some other affiliates are eligible. It is not suitable for public projects due to the login restriction.

Files larger than 100MB will not be accepted for checkin/commit and users are requested to keep their overall repository size under 1GB.
