Git clone, cannot clone public repo

Good afternoon guys,

First of all let me just say that I absolutely love what you are doing here, not just for the awesome product you have but your help in this community.

Guys, I’m currently creating a bluepring using my personal account as a team member of my business account.

My personal account is the one that have github access to my repo, my business account does not.

For some reason during deployment I see the error:

My gemfile points to a gem that I forked and currently that repo is public, so I wonder as to why git clone raises that error.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Hi there,

It seems there may be an issue with it being referenced using SSH git@github:...?

I deployed a test app with:

gem 'tarpon', git: ''

In my Gemfile and it appeared to install successfully. Are you able to try that method to bring in the gem from GitHub?

Hope that helps
