Our company has the policy that users have to request access to a repository via the owner of the repository. (Because the owner knows best what is in the repository and who should have access).
Currently a user can only see the public repositories and repositories he or she already has access to. Also a user can not see who the owner is.
In order to make it easier for users to find out who they can contact for access rights, it would be very useful to have an overview of existing repositories and their owner(s) that is visible to all authenticated users.
