I made a change to some homebrew formula which fixes an issue I had. I also opened an issue to get that fix into the repository.
But no one has responded yet. Now I want to update my homebrew installation. Which fails of course, since I have local changes that have not yet been committed. So I followed the instructions on the homebrew wiki, which tells me to do all sorts of funny things with git. Now git, I have no experience with.
I guess it all went rather fine until it says I should
git push email@example.com:myname/homebrew.git
Obviously, I substituted my Github name for
myname, but it would still fail saying
Permission denied (publickey)
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
This is rather sad. I would have liked to contribute my little fix. Funny enough, after doing all this,
brew update would work again.
Anyway, why is
git push not working for me? How can I contribute my fix to the awesome homebrew project?
