I have strange issue when try git push. Git clone and commit works fine.

W access for my_project DENIED to deploy_my_project_

My gitolite.conf

repo my_project   
R = deploy_my_project_111 
RW+ = my_name

I wonder why git push takes wrong user (deploy_project_111) with read access.

This error is float. Twice i had to change rsa key(rsa keys is unchangeble) and restart computer. May be my computer do something wrong.

I don't recognize that syntax: you should have one line with repo yourRepo, then a line with RW+ yourName – VonC Dec 13 '12 at 10:42
Sorry. Has been edited – Stepchik Dec 13 '12 at 10:49
And do you have a public key with 'my_name' as parameter in the ~git/.ssh/authorized_keys file? – VonC Dec 13 '12 at 11:08
Yes i have public key with 'my_name' – Stepchik Dec 14 '12 at 6:22
However, the error message don't deny access for your name. It denies it for deploy_my_project_. What is the full address URI you are using to push? Do you have a $HOME/.config file on your client (from where you are pushing)? – VonC Dec 14 '12 at 6:32
