For the applying to the Open Source Collective
Open Source Collective offers the option to verify your Collective by showing that it has at least 100 Github stars. Meeting this requirement can expedite the approval of your Collective.
There are a few possible causes for that:
#1: You may be using the wrong GitHub account in the authorization process
If you believe that you may have linked the wrong GitHub account to your Open Collective account, you will need to manually revoke access from the current linked GitHub profile. You can do that by either accessing https://github.com/settings/applications or following our guide:
1. On GitHub, go to Settings.
2. On the Settings menu, click on Applications.
3. On the Applications page, open the Authorized OAuth Apps tab and look for Open Collective.
4. Click on the three dots on the right labeled "Show me more options" to revoke the authorization.
#2: You used the right account, but you didn't grant access to organization repositories
