Very nice! But how does one create a repository in an org?

I tried hitting repos/create with name='vim-scripts/repo'. GitHub silently changes the / to a - and then creates the repo in my account: bronson/vim-scripts-repo. Do I need to pass 'organization=vim-scripts' or something?

Also, why are these new calls marked deprecated?

  • repos/collaborators/:user/:repo/add/:collaborator (DEPRECATED)
  • repos/collaborators/:user/:repo/remove/:collaborator (DEPRECATED)

File an issue for the repos/create bug. It was written with the assumption that you'd only ever create repos on your own account. It'll have to be updated too for orgs.

As for the extra deprecated actions, that was a silly copy/paste error :)
