A lot of people are forking my GitHub repo and I would like to be able to see what new features they may be working on without having to manually visit each fork to watch.

How to automatically watch all of these repositories? And can I set up all new forks be watched in the future?

Right now I have to watch them manually, it takes many clicks.

You mean you don't want to use the network graph? github.com/nicolas-raoul/Anki-Android/network – Eight Days of Malaise Sep 26 '12 at 2:57
@EightDaysofMalaise: That's what I am doing now. But I would prefer being notified by RSS, rather than having to check manually every once in a while. The https://github.com/nicolas-raoul.private.atom RSS feed notifies me of any change to any repository marked as "watched". – nic Sep 26 '12 at 6:48

Just write a small script with Github API. That should be fairly easy.

  1. Get the list of forks
  2. Foreach result set watching

Cool solution ! The second link was broken. Because I didn't got the point, I searched for API repo watching and edited your post. Hope this is ok for you :-) – Danny Jul 11 '15 at 6:37
