I have a lot of repositories on our github account.

I would like to easily find and track repositories that were originally forked, to avoid drifting and remember to send PRs upstream on a regular basis.

Is there a way to track only the repositories that were forked from other users?

Go to Github.com logged in or directly to your profile-page:


On both these pages there are filter-buttons for "Forks".


To find all your forked repositories you can use the search option @raphink to get only your repositories together with fork:only to find forks only, i.e. search for

@raphink fork:only
  • I was gonna suggest using the API, but this is much simpler
