Software development is a collaborative activity its teamwork. Irrespective of a language we have to publish that source code as a bundle so any other user can consume it as a dependency to do this we are always relying on different registry such as maven, Gradle, npm, and docker, etc. You can manage source code as well as your different package under one umbrella.

Github is committed to serving developers and given them different tools to improve the developer experience.

It’s your code, your packages, and one login.

Some developer did collaboration in open source either way either they will commit the code in some repository or they will import open source packages into there project. This is very critical to find out the open source packages that we can trust and import in the dependency graph. We need someone on whom we can rely on for a trust. Like while using open source packages we are always considering different aspects such as trust, community, support in terms of new features or in terms of compliance.
