By default the profile page of a user is the list of repositories they own. It is possible to customize it with a short description that shows to the left, under their avatar. It can now be fully personalized with a markdown file that is displayed instead of the list of repositories.
It uses the
README.md file from the
.profile repository of the
user, if it exists.
NOTE: if a the
.profilerepository is private the
README.mdthey contain will be displayed publicly. It is strongly recommended to verify no such repository exist in a given instance before upgrading.
