Not all company GITHUB repositories are listed, why?

After installation and during 1st start setup I enter my GitHub account and SourceTree lists most repositories but not all of them. All repositories are owned by the company and seemingly have the same configuration.

Could someone advise why some repos will not be listed by SourceTree but are available when I browse GitHub?

We have the same thing. I used the DVCS add-on at JIRA on-demand and added the correct credentials, but only the public repos are listed, not the private fork that particular Github account has.

I filed a bug with Atlassian a long time ago about this. After months of back and forth where it was "my problem" and "we can't reproduce this" (despite very clear reproducible steps and multiple requests to Atlassian for a debug-enabled version of SourceTree so that I could run it and send them debug logs, they never provided me with this) they finally admitted they could reproduce it.

Still not fixed yet...

Here is the JIRA issue on this:


Please vote on this and let Atlassian know we need this fixed sooner rather than later.

On the other hand, I have been moving away from using Source Tree to just doing all my git work from the command line since it's faster than fighting the tool.
