please note that in the final “password for https:_//nicerapp@github_com” prompt, i DID use the new personal access token (which i even re-generated and tried again)…

and your documentation could include the 3 commands i used here to tell linux git to get rid of the old stored passwords, that took some googling too! :slight_smile:

good luck, i hope this gets fixed by Monday afternoon :slight_smile:
