I'm using Mac OS 10.8.5. In the GitHub Desktop Application I get this error message when I try to commit:
*Error initializing submodule "repositoryname"* > Make sure that the parent repository's .git/config file is writable, then > try again. > So to back up, I am very new to Git. I am working with someone that added me as a contributor to their repository. So I installed everything (Mac OS 10.8.5) and tried to fumble my way through getting started. I started using the GitHub Desktop Application and it all seemed to be working correctly. I just can't sync and commit. I tried to go back and read all the documentation and open up Terminal and do the whole "git init" for this repository. I succeeded to reinitialize it, which made me feel good despite my lack of command line prowess. I've read the documentation, watched the videos, watched third party videos on YouTube and Googled my error message. But I haven't found a thing that helps. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
