There's a typo on line 20, "getopts". The string should be "h?u:p:r:Dl?" without a colon following the "D". The colon makes the parser thing "D" has a following argument, and it does not.

I have also found that this script can also be adapted to GitHub Enterprise by substituting "https://<gheurl>/api/<apiversion>" for "https://api.github.com", at least in the case of the GHE instance that I use. The API version I used was "v3". (Opening that URL in the browser should produce a JSON page similar to opening https://api.github.com in a browser, though it might be a whole lot shorter and may have a message about requiring authentication.)

To make it work for comma separated list of collaborators, replace lines 72 to 79 with:

repos=(${REPOS//,/ })
collaborators=(${COL_USER//,/ })

if [[ ! -z "$COL_USER" ]]; then
  for repo in "${repos[@]}"; do
    for collaborator in "${collaborators[@]}"; do
      echo "[INFO] $METHOD $collaborator to $repo"
      curl -i -u "$GH_USER:$PASSWORD" -X $METHOD -d '' "https://api.github.com/repos/$repo/collaborators/$collaborator" 2>&1 | grep message || echo "OK, done."
    done
  done
