Does anyone know what *really* happens when I switch a private repo to public? The UI gives me a menacing warning that Things Might Go Totally Wrong, but does that really happen? I want to switch my personal blog to a public repo.

@jwildeboer It just becomes a public repo, the warning is mostly because if you were storing any secrets in it (even in the history) you'd be leaking that, so it's a good idea to make sure you're not having any keys or other secrets in there.

@SylvieLorxu I haven't. So I did. Now I am looking forward to Pull Requests to fix my evil blog :)

@jwildeboer is the warning present for both? Because public to private can be destructive
