I am attempting to submit a package. I read the Wiki page: "AUR submission guidelines". In the Authentication section, I am told to create a config file and generate a key. I did everything it told me to do. When connecting, I entered the fingerprint. I have done everything that I need to do, yet when I attempt to clone the (empty) repo, I am met with: Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

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

I don't know what to do. This is my "ssh -v" output:

Thanks for the report! Did you make sure that the key SSH tries to use here is the same you added to your AUR user profile?
