@brianamarie: After your manual completion, the tutorial had a banner on top that said there was a newer version of the tutorial. Clicking this made me start the tutorial all over, but i was able to complete it without getting stuck.
Looking for guidance at my own course, again on deployments.
AFAICT I've made the fix the bot asked for, but am stuck on 'review required'.
Attempted to assign myself as reviewer, reviewed changes.
Refreshed a couple of times, no change.
@hectorsector Thanks for checking in.
I gave up on the course.
AFAICT I'd done the requested change, but the bot isn't acknowledging the change.
The bot is asking me to change the theme of the blog. Which I did - then changed it again, and back again to see if it would notice. No dice.
It's 'GitHub pages with Jekyll', step 5 - supposed to be about creating a blog post.
Oddly it shows me as completing the course - not sure how that happened.
I ran into this same issue. Seems when the GitHub Learning tool creates the repository it sets the "Requires Review" and "Enforce For Administrators" options to On. But as I'm the only user in my Git Repository there is no way to review it, as you can't review your own code. What I did was uncheck the both options (Settings>Branch>... scroll down.)
+1,000 for this comment. The text for this step should specify using the drop-down to merge to branch. As it is, the text says, "select your -patch-1 branch" but doesn't explain where on the page you would do this: this step is easily overlooked.
