Place a lock symbol on private repos

Issue #17083 resolved
Robin Alarcon created an issue

I am a college professor and my students use Bitbucket for their version control. They add me so that I am able to view their repos, but as part of their grade, they must make their repos private. Since I have been added to the repo for grading purposes, there is no way for me to see if it is public or private.

Thank you.

    Hi Robin,

    When you're viewing a repository, we overlay a lock icon on the repository avatar in the navigation:

    lock.png

    There are other places we could do this, but we also don't want to overwhelm the UI with locks! (Many customers exclusively use private repos)

    Is there somewhere else you'd like to see a lock that would make it easier to tell?

    Thanks,
