I was trying to fetch a svn repo and it kept saying:
Authentication realm: <*site*> *repo* login
password for '*local computer login name*':
Wtf? I tried to set the username using the command:
git config github.user '*my repo username*'
but with no joy.
Do I have to use --username on all of my commands? REALLY? Grrrr....
