Error while setting up a new Grunt-based project

Hi there! While trying to set up a new test project with Foundation 5 for Grunt and LibSass I get an error.

I installed the foundation gem and ran the command:

foundation new ftest --libsass

And this is the response I get

Creating ./ftest
      create  ftest
ERROR: Repository not found.
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

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

Any ideas?

I'm running:

- OS X Mavericks
- Ruby 2.0.0p247
- Foundation gem v1.0.0
- NPM 1.3.14

I get a similar error for a compass project:

They don't seem to have tagged the 5.0 release yet at the github repo, most current tag is still 4.3.2. That breaks the Bower installation method at least, maybe others too.

An update has been pushed. Please install gem install foundation to get the latest update. Thanks!

I am also still getting this in my terminal when trying to install via bower method.

bower install foundation

Additional error details:
fatal: remote error:

Email support@github.com for help

Not sure why this is happening.

Hi,

Seems that using:
https://github.com/foundation copy=zurb/bower-foundation.git

instead of
git://github.com/foundation copy=zurb/bower-foundation.git

might solve the problem. Seems that git protcol uses port 9418 which might be closed by your sysadmin.

Cheers,
B.
