Dear all,

I’m trying to push a bug fix for wavClusteR to the BioC GitHub repository. I currently pushed the latest package version to the devel and master branch of my GitHub repository (https://github.com/FedericoComoglio/wavClusteR <https://github.com/FedericoComoglio/wavClusteR><https://github.com/FedericoComoglio/wavClusteR>).

To sync these changes with the bioC GitHub repository, I have followed the documentation at https://bioconductor.org/developers/how-to/git/ <https://bioconductor.org/developers/how-to/git/><https://bioconductor.org/developers/how-to/git/> . However, even though I added an upstream remote to my repository and added a public key as described, when I fetch updates from all (see https://bioconductor.org/developers/how-to/git/sync-existing-repositories/ <https://bioconductor.org/developers/how-to/git/sync-existing-repositories/><https://bioconductor.org/developers/how-to/git/sync-existing-repositories/>) I get

git at git.bioconductor.org<mailto:git at git.bioconductor.org> <mailto:git at git.bioconductor.org><mailto:git at git.bioconductor.org>: Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.
error: Could not fetch upstream

Could you please help me with this issue?

Thanks a lot for your time and patience.

Best wishes,
