I have a question about the security of private repo's on Github. Assume you use HTTPS authenticated against SAML SSO to fetch and push changes to remote. Could an outside adversary scrape the files from the display page if they know the URL?
Someone who does not have access to a private repository sees a 404 Page not found error. So no, if an outsider knows the url he can not scrape the contents of your github repository page.
Not safe from Github itself, they will scrape it for building models for copilot if soon enough. Doesn't even matter what license you put there.
