Why is Cauldron missing 4 repos that are in a GitHub organization?

I created a report for the GitHub organization https://github.com/camunda-community-hub, which has 123 repositories.

However, Cauldron only had 119 repositories – missing 4.

At first, I thought that maybe “archived” repositories were missing, but there were more than 4 of those.

To debug this, I manually compared the list of data sources in Cauldron with the list of repositories on GitHub.

What was consistent across all missing repositories is that they were forked from somewhere else, which looked like this:

This is when I remembered an option to include forks when I created the Cauldron report. This option is by default disabled, excluding forked repositories.

After adding all of the data sources to include forks, Cauldron now also shows all 123 repositories.

Problem solved!
