Hi Eric,

Sorry for the issue. Can you please press the Debug button in the
dialog and tell me some more about the `response` variable you should
see in the top context? For example what is the `response code` (401
or 403) or the `response content`? I would ask for the whole object,
but it also contains the request and that should contain your
credentials in the headers, which I don't want to see obviously. :-)
Could you please inspect whether the `response request` actually
contains authentication headers? I have seen in the past that
sometimes the WebClient does not send them when it should.

If you restart the context in the debugger (should be either
GitSmartHTTPProtocol>>#discoverReferencesForService: or
GitSmartHTTPProtocol>>#invokeReceivePackWithRefs:andPack:deleting:) to
repeat the request, does the same error occur again or does it work on
second try? If the WebClient shows further problems, you can also try
to restart the topmost SquitBrowser context that you find on the

About backing out: like Fabio said, the Git history is all on your
disk and you can still pull/push/... with the Git command line. To see
the files, you just have to checkout a commit (or reset --hard to see
the latest files on the branch). Then you will find everything in
filetree format (or Tonel if you configured it so). A converter exists
for Monticello->Squot (see
https://github.com/hpi-swa/Squot/#converting-monticello-history), but
not for the other way around, since Squot repositories are just
metadata-less filetree repositories. If someone really wants to build
a converter for the other direction, they could probably learn from
the existing converter and turn the read/write logic around. However,
I would rather like to find and fix your push issue.

Kind regards,

I have been successfully pushing commits to it for a couple of weeks from the same image. This includes commits that I made yesterday. But today, suddenly, I am no longer able to push to my remote. Instead, I get the error in the attached image.

If I wish to find a way to "back out" of using Squot, is there some way to convert everything to Monticello (filetree) and just push it manually from my terminal?
