[llvm-dev] Workflow to commit changes using git alone (?)

If you want to use your key to authenticate, you need to set your remote URL to the SSH one:

git remote set-url --push origin git at github.com:llvm/llvm-project.git

You can get the SSH URL by going to https://github.com/llvm/llvm-project/ and clicking on Clone or download to get the appropriate URL ... it should give you the option to Clone with SSH.

I've not had a ton of luck with HTTPS authentication, but SSH has worked pretty well. I don't know how true that holds for Windows though.

    I was kind of expecting it to prompt me... here are some possibly 
    relevant git-config settings:
    user.name=Paul Robinson
    user.email=paul.robinson at sony.com
    I haven't put my github account name in anywhere, am I supposed to?
    I do have a key set on the account, but I might have messed up when
    trying to put it in a right place on my Windows system.
    FTR the website instructions still talk about using "git llvm push"
    which IIUC is Not A Thing anymore.
