I have a public project on GitHub in my organization's account. I'd like to add it to, but "Add Project" won't accept it. The project's clone URL is git:// .

If I search for "aker"1, there's a project listed but no forks. In case it matters: I set up the rdocinfo post-receive hook in GitHub before the first time I tried to use's "Add Project" button. I don't believe there are any other projects on GitHub named "aker".

There are other projects from this organization account in rubydoc.info2.

Thanks for any advice or assistance

    The repo was just corrupted. I've reset it. Are you by any chance using the Github post-receive hook?

    I'm using the GitHub built-in "rdocinfo" hook, which I thought was correct. I noticed when looking around on tender this morning that there was another option ( I'll switch to that.

    We've been having problems with the post receive hooks, which is likely why the repo became corrupt. We're currently looking into it, but we think it might be something on Github's end.

    Open a new issue if this happens again,

    Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience!
