There are a few other solutions to this problem at https://github.com/isaacs/github/issues/50
- Using GitHub webhook, an event is triggered to see if the org is already being followed
- If not, a record is created (organisation name, public repo count, issue id etc)
- Every 6 hour, (for all organisations) a cron job checks if the org has any extra public repositories
- In case of any new repository, a comment is created with the links to the new repositories
> There is no point in posting "+1" here, this is an unofficial repo. Send an email to email@example.com instead
To avoid more useless "+1" comments in the issue ;)
I am planning to make it more accessible, please follow the follow-github-organisation for updates. Pun intended.
Let me know if you have any other feedback.
