Add ability to fork and edit files from external URL #460
Github has a wonderful feature to fork a repo via a URL:
I would like to request that adding a path to a file to the end of the URL would cause the user to navigate to that file in edit mode in their newly forked repo:
It would work similarly to the way that the edit button works inside Github.
I don't understand: why not just give the link for the edit button, e.g.: https://github.com/gitlabhq/gitlabhq/edit/master/VERSION
If the user commits, that already generates the fork if not yet forked.
Can you explain the exact use case?
