when i tried to create a github repo by hub, got this error.

$ mkdir awesome-app && cd awesome-app
$ touch
$ git init
$ git add .
$ git commit -m "initial commit"
$ hub create -d "a simple awesome app" username: 1272729223 password for 1272729223 (never sored):  *********
Error creating repository: Unprocessable Entity (HTTP 422)

I googled it, but found nothing helped.

I've got the same error message in #431, but only when creating a repo under an organization. I am not sure if these are related.

Not sure what's going on here. I'm in the process of adding debugging capabilities to hub so we can figure this out together.

Please update to v1.12.0 to see if your problem persists. If it's the same, in that release you can set the HUB_VERBOSE=1 hub create environment variable to turn on detailed debug output about HTTP traffic which should help us figure out what's going on. After you've done that, feel free to open a separate issue with your info.

Had same problem, fixed by update to 1.12.
