I’ve been trying to use the import tool (https://github.com/new/import) to import the code from an existing GitHub repo into a newly created one.
Each time, it will start up, then give the message asking for credentials:
“Your old project requires credentials for read-only access. We will only temporarily store them for importing.”
Once I type in the credentials, it goes back to the screen showing the progress, but never advances. It then asks for credentials again after a while. This just repeats until I press “Cancel”.
The repo to import is private and the new repo will be private as well. Am I doing something wrong on my end? Maybe I’m not getting the right clone URL? I’ve tried both https://github.com/JohnPollockMIC/reponame and https://github.com/JohnPollockMIC/reponame.git
