I am not an expert, but if you're repository is being accessed via HTTP:,
the 403 might be an HTTP result code. In HTTP-speak, it means "forbidden".
According to the documentation, and rendered in my own dialect, that means:
"I heard what you said. I understand what you said. But I'm not going to do
it, so there!" One example from a normal web browser is when you put in the
name of a directory instead of an actual page, and directory browsing is
what does "git remote -v" say?

This is a test of the Emergency Broadcast System. If this had been an
actual emergency, do you really think we'd stick around to tell you?
