Check who generated a repository from your GitHub template

Eureka! After reading this - Search based on the contents of a repository, the answer was clear! Search by README.md file content!

I always use the name of the repository as the title (# terraform-multienv) which is very common, so if you also do that keep on reading.

Use GitHub's search engine and provide a unique combination of words that appear in your README.md file. This is how I do it for my template - unfor19/terraform-multienv

I use the latter query to get meaningful search results, by sorting with sort:updated and filtering out my user name -user:USERNAME with -QUALIFIER. The keyword @me is a saved keyword given by GitHub.
