I have been trying to submit a new package to AUR 4 called "gitlab-ci-multi-runner". However, my push request is being rejected with the following error message:

git-receive-pack: permission denied: Kuci
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

Command used to clone repository for the package worked properly though:

$ git"> ssh://

When I wanted to check whether remotes are set properly, output looked correctly:

$ git remote -v"> ssh:// (fetch)"> ssh:// (push)

When I was trying to create the repository manually, I received the following message:

$ ssh setup-repo gitlab-ci-multi-runner
setup-repo: package base already exists: gitlab-ci-multi-runner

I think this message indicates that there is a bug in AUR 4 backend. There are currently 4 GitLab packages in AUR 4. I have checked all of them and there is not a single perfect match in pkgbase with my package. However, there is at least one partial match, "gitlab-ci". To me it seems like AUR 4 matches it incorrectly.

If you are interested in the package sources, you can find them here:

gitlab-ci-multi-runner is maintained by chris on aur4. Kuci is your user name. Wait until 2015-08-08, which is when unmaintained packages will be disowned on AUR 4.

Well, I do not see the package being present in AUR 4 nor in AUR 3. Could you explain how you found out that the package is maintained by chris, please ?

See [1]. You cannot find that package base using the search function because it is an AUR 3 import from the AUR 4 transition period. It will be removed on August, 8th.

So, AUR has been upgraded to v4.0.0 but the pkgbase is still present and owned by chris, which prevents me from uploading the actual package.

EDIT: Chris has transferred ownership to me, the package is online.
