Topic: Isabelle Docker image on GitHub Actions

Is there anybody here who has successfully used Makarius’s Isabelle Docker image with GitHub actions, for example, to perform automatic builds? I thought it should be as easy as setting up a simple GitHub workflow that employs this Docker image for the actual building, but apparently this is not so.

The concrete problem I’m experiencing is that downloading the current commit from the repository via actions/checkout@v2 runs into a permission problem. A minimal example of a workflow that shows this problem is as follows:

name: Automated checkout

on: [push]

    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    container: makarius/isabelle
      - name: Check out repository
        uses: actions/checkout@v2

The error I get is this one:

EACCES: permission denied, open '/__w/⟨repository-name⟩/⟨repository-name⟩/⟨uuid⟩.tar.gz'
