Forks totalCount is less than real fork count


This request to get fork count

query {
  repositoryOwner(login: "symfony") {
    repository(name: "symfony") {
      forks(first: 15) {

returns 4984

however, if you visit the [repository page symfony/symfony] (, you can see there “Forks: 5082

Why it is different? How to get with GarphQL what everybody sees on GitHub?


I’ve logged an internal issue to look into this. Thanks for the report!
