This is more of a Git/Github question, but I thought I would ask it here in case any one is wondering the same thing.
I want to work on a fork of discourse privately for a while, before my idea is ready for making public. (An attempt to formalise debate online for making governmental decisions)
Github says I have to duplicate the repository, as you can’t make a public fork private.
In terms of me working on this duplicate, but pulling in changes from the core repo, how do I keep my fork/duplicate up to date? Is there a difference between the fork and the duplicate apart from the connection of the fork itself?
And does this break any licence issues?
