       github-backup - backs up data from GitHub


       github-backup [username|organization ...] [options]


       github-backup  is  a  simple  tool  you run in a git repository you cloned from GitHub. It
       backs up everything GitHub publishes about the repository, including other branches, tags,
       forks, issues, comments, wikis, milestones, pull requests, and watchers.

       Alternately, if you pass it the username of a GitHub user, it will check out, and back up,
       all that user's repositories, as well as all the repositories that user is watching. (Also
       works to pass the name of an organization using GitHub.)

       By  default  it  runs  without  logging  in  to GitHub. To log in, set the GITHUB_USER and
       GITHUB_PASSWORD environment variables. Or, set GITHUB_OAUTH_TOKEN to an oath  or  personal
       access  token.   However note that logging in only works around API rate limiting; it does
       not allow private repositories to be downloaded.


              When backing up a user or an organization, this can be used to exclude backup of  a
              particular  repository  belonging  to the user or organization.  This option can be
              specified any number of times to exclude more than one repository.

              Avoid backing up a repository's forks.
