Yes, it will never happen on my machine.

And using git for windows: <>

I did a:
$ git clone --recursive git_at_[hidden]:boostorg/boost.git modular-boost

Cloning into 'modular-boost'...
The authenticity of host ' (' can't be established.
RSA key fingerprint is SHA256:nThbg6kXUpJWGl7E1IGOCspRomTxdCARLviKw6E5SY8.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?

Warning: Permanently added ',' (RSA) to the list

Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

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

And the clone.log is empty.
I'm not even a novice at git so not sure how to check if the repository
exists or what from here. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Dan.
