What this PR does
When github.com displays a list of repositories for a user or organization, the repositories are ordered starting with the one with the most recent commit. This ensures that the freshest repositories, which are most likely to be of interest to the user appear at the top of the list.
A user might have worked on a repository that doesn't appear on their organization's list of 100 repositories with recent commits. To ensure that these repositories are also visible, the list of repositories that the user has contributed to has also been included in this list. This includes repositories they created, committed to, opened an issue on or sent a pull request to.
If a user wants to clone a repository that they don't own, isn't on the top 100 active list and they haven't contributed to, they always have the option to open it using the URL tab (like they would for a 3rd party public repository).
