Fork or clone a repository in Gist or Github

GitHub is a web-based hosting service using
 the Git revision control system

Gist is a simple way to share snippets and pastes with others

For the following examples, first sign in my Github account

Example 1   fork  Gist repository in other users:
Go to the  gist I want to fork, example
at right top, click  fork
Now it is cloned to my account
Now in gist, click user name still in gist. Switch back to Github,
click github  at the top right menu,
now back to github, click use name, now you can see you gitnub repository, not gist,

Example 2:  fork a github (not gist) repository, for example
click fork at right top, then it will be shown in my github (in gist)
Note: it is shown  under repositories, not contribution
