����� Thanks.� I'm still having problems:
��� ������� 1.� I went to "github.com" and logged in with my standard
��� ������� 2.� Then I clicked "+" in the upper right, just left of my
GitHub ID icon, and selected "Import a repository", as Lionel suggested.
��� ������� 3.� " Your old repository�s clone URL" =
"https://r-forge.r-project.org/projects/ecdat/" with "Name" = "Ecdat".
��� �� �� ������� ** >> This failed, first giving me a 500 failure
code, then reporting " Repository creation failed."� When I tried it
again, I got, "The repository Ecdat already exists on this account."
����� What do you suggest I try next?
