Why can't I make my cloned workspace public?


#1

I have cloned a workspace and now I’d like to make the clone public. Whenever I try to do that, I get an error saying that private workspaces cannot have public clones. Why can’t I make this new clone public?


#2

This is done in an effort to help code that is private remain private. If someone clones a private repository/workspace and then makes it public then that may be betraying the original intent of the code.

In order to overcome this, simply set the original workspace to public and then you can change the cloned workspace to public. From there, you may try setting the original workspace back to private and see if that works.
