This is somewhat off-topic, but I just ran into an issue with GitHub, and I am not sure how to handle it.

I use this command to “git” the sage tree when Volker announces a new one:
git clone git://github.com/sagemath/sage.git

I now get an immediate response:
fatal: remote error:
The unauthenticated git protocol on port 9418 is no longer supported.
Please see https://github.blog/2021-09-01-improving-git-protocol-security-github/ for more information.

I looked at the web page mentioned, and, if I understand what is described (not entirely clear), I just need to replace “git:” with “https:”. But the next paragraph mentions that they have removed support for passwords over HTTPS.

So I’m a bit confused. Was this discussed on Sage lists?

Thanks for pointers or hints!

Justin

PS: the change happened in the last day or so; I had cloned the tree a day or two ago on other systems without problems

D’oh! I would have tried that if I could spell.

Thanks, Dima, worked like a champ.

I experienced the same issue and did git clone  https://github.com/sagemath/sage.git.
It’s working fine now.

Git trac is still working well so far.

David.
