One of the comments there: "Or you make your repository public, then

And everyone who _is_ a collaborator has what?

Push access (svn would call this commit access). I don't think collaborators have access to the settings of the project thought. Perhaps that is dependent on what role the collaborator has.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fork_%28software_development%29
implies that a fork is a divergent development branch - a separate copy
of the project that has no ongoing link to the original.  Is the Git
concept of a fork different?

If you're forking a project on Github you get your own copy of the project. The projects are linked but the repositories are not. What I mean by that is on your fork you'll see that it is a fork with a link back to the original project. From the original project you can also view all forks.

The repositories are not linked in the sense that there's no automatic syncing of code between them. The fork needs to manually pull from the original repository to get the latest changes.
