a Git question

Hi everyone,

Bruce Bell-Myers offered to work with me on an activity.  I created some
code and pushed it to sugarlabs git with the results mentioned in the
forwarded message.  This morning it occurred to me that I may have created a
permissions problem for myself.  I created my private key as root, and it is
stored under /root on my local machine -- so when I'm wanting to push to
sugarlabs I need to become root to do the push. Is it possible that the
identity I used during the push is not being masked completely on the
server, and I'm encountering root squash-like behavior?

Or maybe there is human intervention that I need to request.

Anyone have ideas on how I should proceed?

I did another push to sugarlabs.org. No error messages. But then when I try
to "git clone http://sugarlabs.org/git/xophoto.mainline.git" the response is
"fatal: http://sugarlabs.org/git/xophoto/mainlinee.git/info/refs not found:
did you run git update-server-info on the server?"

This appears to be a script that should run on sugarlabs server. But noone
else appears to be having the problem.

I don't know enough to distinguish between the error message and the real
