I though this would be easy but seem to be stumped…I am trying to update a gist file through conventional git commands but can’t seem to do so, getting a push failure.
Here’s what I have tried so far (based on what works for regular github repos under my account):
- I created a public gist using the UI and then cloned it over https
- I’ve set my local git config user.name to match my github user name, and set the email to the private format that github assigns. (And also triedmy normal, registered email)
- specified a full access PAT for my password. (And also tried my github login password)
- Made a local edit and commit
- But the push fails. I get:
remote: Permission to write to gist denied.
I don’t see any setting to control permissions to a gist. Or have I missed it somewhere?
