When I try to add a GitHub repository on Careers (http://careers.stackoverflow.com/import/github/847) for the "Open Source" section of my profile, it adds a broken item to the "Apps & Software" section instead.

I am using Firefox 18.0.2. These are the steps I follow:

Click on the GitHub icon under "Open Source":

Click "add" for the repository I want:

Return to the profile and voilĂ :

It is in the wrong place ("Apps & Sofware" instead of "Open Source") and it imported no data.

  • I love that with all this computing knowledge we still haven't developed an app that easily allows people to write a caption on an image and instead we must resort to scrawling with a software pen!! – Toby Allen Feb 25 '13 at 22:05

  • Hmm, now the data does get imported, but the projects still end up in the wrong place ("Apps & Software" instead of "Open Source"). – R. Martinho Fernandes Feb 25 '13 at 20:50
  • BitBucket repos get imported to the right place. It's only GitHub repos that go in the wrong place. – R. Martinho Fernandes Feb 25 '13 at 21:04
  • You're right. The GitHub import now pulls all the data, but doesn't put the "Open Source" sticker on your project as it should. Investigating this further... – Max Feb 25 '13 at 22:02
  • Try again, please. Open Source projects should now end up in the correct section. – Max Feb 26 '13 at 14:23
  • It works correctly now. Thanks! – R. Martinho Fernandes Feb 26 '13 at 21:11
