GitHub Repository Not Found Workaround

Today I encountered an issue with GitHub where I was unable to fetch a remote repository to merge into my local clone. Everything seemed to be configured correctly, and I am able to fetch repositories from the same user without a problem, so it seems like there is some issue with this particular repository.
