hmm well that's what I did the first time (here's the command from the
git clone git://git.fedorahosted.org/sssd.git
So far I've only reviewed and patched one man page (a couple of weeks
ago) and that went ok, and now I'm trying to do sssd-ldap(5). I've
recloned anyway, as you suggested, and I'll see how we go from here.
Unless I really don't grok git (quite possible), I should be able to do
a git pull on this clone at any time and get the latest man page updates
(along with everything else), right?
Hmm, that's very strange. The message you're seeing is because 'git
pull' is trying to use SSH to connect to the git repository, but it
shouldn't be doing this unless you initially connected to it over SSH.
Basically, what you're seeing is that it's attempting to use your SSH
key for identity. I'm not really sure how you got into this state.
You're correct that you should be able to do a git pull trivially.
Delivering value year after year.
