Unable to accept a repo being transferred from alt account

I have transferred a repo from my alt account to this account but have no option to accept or view the repo. I’m not really sure what is going on. I’ve got the account name and everything correct, but nothing has actually happened. Do I need to just wait?

In the original repository you should be able to see the transferal status, i.e. if the other account has accepted taking on the repository. It should mention that the transferal is waiting for approval, and (if I remember correctly) also provide the link to the transferal-notification.

You’ll need to first add your new account as a collaborator to every repository you want to transfer ownership of:


I’ve transferred a few repos to/from my account, and the procedure was quite straight forward, but I also experienced issues with notifications being lost (never understood why, possibly the invitation email got lost in spam filters). Retrieving the invitation link and sending it manually is always a good precaution. Needless to say, you’ll only be able to see the confirmation page when you’re logged with your new account.
