Add Probot Stale configuration file

Authored by Francesco Siddi (fsiddi) on Oct 9 2019, 3:46 PM.



During the Code Quest 2018, I proposed to create an official mirror of Blender on GitHub. The goal of such mirror was to increase Blender's outreach towards perspective developers by making it available outside of, for easy discovery, code browsing, forking, and as a startup playground in general. This would be a read-only mirror with all "interactive" features disabled, such as:

  • Issue creation
  • Wiki
  • Projects
  • Pull request

The proposal was accepted.

Most "interactive" features can be disabled in the repository settings, except for Pull requests. In order to effectively communicate that Pull requests will not be accepted via GitHub, but should rather submitted to we make use of Probot.

The file in this commit is used on Blender's GitHub mirror to automatically close any pull request and invite contributors to join the official development platform on

Feedback on the wording is welcome!
