Pagination for repo list

Hi, I happen to have ~6,000 github repositories, and it takes quite a while for Appveyor to list them when I want to add another project. It works, though, which is nice, but then I need to wait another 10 minutes for the next repo to add. (I only want to add ~10 of them, not all 6,000, so I figured I can do this manually.)

Maybe you could have some pagination if the user has more than 100 repos, or something like that.

    Hi Gabor,

    Wow, that's huge! :) I remember having issues with more than 100 repos, but 6000...

    I think going through 120 pages (50 repos per page) wouldn't be nice either though it seems to be the only way with the current GitHub API as they don't provide search yet.

    Hi Feodor,

    thanks for the reply. Luckily I don't have to go over them, because the
    ones I don't want to add are from the same org, and that comes in the end.
    But this is just luck. :)

    So for me it would also work, if one could select a single org, and then
    list the repos within that. Then I could just ignore the org with the 6,000

    But I agree, that search would be the ideal solution, although I could live
    with pagination for now.
