SOLVED write access to git repository
this is maybe a stupid questions for all you github pro’s, but I’m really struggling to commit a tiny fix and it already costs me some hours to provide this contribution.
What I have done so far:
- cloned repository
- created new branch
- added changes
- commit changes
But when I try to push it fails, however pull from master works.
~/Documents/Sandbox/privat/MagicMirror (add-translation) git push --set-upstream origin add-translation Enter passphrase for key '/c/Users/carsten/.ssh/id_rsa': ERROR: Permission to MichMich/MagicMirror.git denied to sten82. fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists. ~/Documents/Sandbox/privat/MagicMirror (master) git pull Enter passphrase for key '/c/Users/carsten/.ssh/id_rsa': Already up-to-date.
I’m running on Windows 10 with git console. I have stored ssh key in Github (and checked if it works) and changed gitconfig to use ssh instead of https.
What am I doing wrong?
Thank you in advance,
YOU cannot push to the core repo… you can create a fork (under YOUR github userid), and then clone/push to THAT repo…
you can then propose changes to the master repo, by submitting a pull request, for your branch back to the master (and some branch, usually dev) … and the master owner can accept it , or not… and then merge it with the master branch whenever…
thank you for the clarification, since I have never contributed before I didn’t knew that. That really helped my a lot.
