Steps to clone the repository

Create a local copy of the forked repository.

Lets update the README file to push some changes and setup the github authentication.

echo -e "\n#### Repo forked, lets go" >>

Check if the text #### Repo forked, lets go was inserted at the end of the file.

cat ~/environment/awscloudbuilders-containerise-dotnet/

Setup the cache timeout for the GitHub password.

git config --global credential.helper 'cache --timeout 10800'
