So..you need to have a GitHub account in order to clone locally a public open source code?...and what is the real benefit of this? None in my opinion

developers/users of GitHub can see who is cloning their repository and GitHub already having insight feature of how many clones we have then this is addon but useful for tracking user engagement by knowing the name of the person and that's all

Stars, forks and number of clones is already enough for tracking engagement, no need to know the names of users who cloned. You know who cloned because ot creates a new repo in github, cloning is not forking..and me first would not want someone to know my name/username/email just because I cloned a public repo

cloned means who downloaded that repository that user should know and that i think that will be the feature but i appreciate your reply it is just your thought by own perspective let see what other people say .thank you😊👋
