I was added as a collaborator to a GitHub repository. I received an email about it and everything, but it doesn't appear on my "Repositories" list when I go to my profile.

Is there a reason for this and is it possible to get it to show on that list so I don't have to keep finding the link in my email to go to it?


Hopefully by now you've found an answer, but for anyone else with the same question, it won't show in your "Repositories" list, because that's only the repositories where you are an author/owner. However, on the left side of the main GitHub page (when you're logged in) you'll see a sidebar titled "Repositories".

This list is where you will see all repositories that you contribute to, or have forked.
