OK, finally figured out what the user error was.. I had introduced a typo
in the URL at some point and the clone wasn't finding anything. Hence the
empty, and marked invalid, resulting git repo. I did get the authors file
to work too. And the commits in github show up as being done by me. You can
see the result at <>. I'm
attaching the authors file that I used (it just has myself in it). Perhaps
we can create a fully populated authors file for others to use?

PS.. I'll see about responding to the testing related email tomorrow. Time
to sleep now.
