I am using Sprint Tool Suite 4 (Eclipse), which has a “github” view.
I have a project based on a local clone of a github project. This local clone reflects the contents of the project at the time I originally cloned it (months ago). I was hoping to update the local clone, but have been unable to figure out how to do this.
I thought it might be easier to instead start over. I now have a fork of the project on my own account. Using the option “Clone a Git repository” I specified the address (yes, included .git), and put in my id and password. But it seems I’m not allowed to connect.
The error message includes the following as a possible cause:
SSL host could not be verified (set http.sslVerify=false in Git configuration)
I’m not using SSL host, am I? Is that something that is happening “under the hood”? Is the normal signin name and password no longer sufficient for this operation?
